Internal security forces, began investigations on January 5 as a result of incidents that took place inside the al-Hol Camp, as funerals of six people took place.
Al-Hol Camp located near Hasakah in Northern Syria hosts thousands of mostly ISIS wives and ISIS supporting women and their children from different countries of the world.
According to the Gazete Karınca, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) members in the camp are trying reestablish the inhumane methods and ideology of ISIS/Daesh inside the camp.
The territorial sovereignty of ISIS, which started with invasion attacks of Mosul and Sinjar in the region and was marked by particularly gruesome mass massacres, beheadings etc that it carried out in Syria and Iraq since 2014, was terminated in Bāghūz town of Deir ez-Zur on March 21, 2019, thanks to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). The ISIS wives and children who left there in groups were placed in the Hol Camp.
One of the woman in the camp, Eyşe, (does not give her real name for security reasons) told the Gazete Karınca reporter that the Telegram application communicated ISIS’s orders via phones and that the instructions were received on the app.
Eyşe says that women are reorganizing themselves according to ISIS rules have assigned morality scouts to identify those who do not act according to this ISIS lifestyle. According to Eyşe, there are watchers aimed to identify other women who refuse to obey ISIS’s way of thinking and lifestyle inside the camp.
ISIS activity in the camp is still very much active. Deaths in the camp also indicate ISIS activity.
Nearly 30 women and children were killed in the camp in the last 6 months. It is said that those who were killed were targeted “because they did not live according to the rules of ISIS”.
On January 2, the dead bodies of two Iraqi people were found in Hol Camp, which is known as “one of the most dangerous camps in the world”.
According to the information provided by the camp administration, nearly 30 women and children were killed in the camp in the last 6 months alone.
When a 30-year-old Indonesian pregnant woman named Sodermini was found dead last summer, doctors stated that she had been ‘badly tortured’ to death. It was also determined that a Moroccan women’s body was found in October 2019. In August, a 14-year-old Azerbaijani girl was killed by her grandmother simply because she was not wearing a headscarf. These are just a few known detials of the murders that took place in the camp.
While the Internal Security Forces continue to investigate the incident, the probablity is that the murders are being committed by ISIS.
