Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
APsplainin | Turkey starts returning IS[ISIL/ISIS/DAESH] fighters; deports US national
(minus NE, NW Syria geography lesson, BETRAYED Kurdish "detention camps," US military ahh advisors, and "Isis bride" roll call)
The move comes just over a week after the Turkish interior minister said Turkey was not a "hotel" for IS fighters and criticized Western nations for their reluctance to take back citizens who had joined the ranks of the ["]extremist militant["] group as it sought to establish a caliphate in Iraq and Syria.
Turkish Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said last week that about 1,200 foreign IS fighters were in Turkish prisons and 287 members, including women and children, were recaptured during Turkey's offensive in Syria.
Several [?] European countries, including Britain, have stripped IS fighters of their nationalities to prevent their return.
Seven other German nationals were scheduled to leave the country on Thursday, he said. Two Irish nationals, two German nationals and 11 French nationals who were captured in Syria were also to be transferred to their home countries soon, Catakli said.
In Denmark, Justice Minister Nick Hakkerup told Danish broadcaster TV2 that any Danish citizens who fought for IS and are repatriated to the country "must be punished as severely as possible." ... In Bosnia, government officials announced on Monday that citizens who had fought with IS could return to the country, while a Dutch court ruled on the same day that the country must attempt to bring home children whose mothers traveled to Syria to join ["]Islamic extremist["] groups. The decision came in response to a case filed by lawyers on behalf of 23 women and their 56 children who are housed in camps in northern Syria.
