Rabat – Sixty Moroccan women are being held in custody with their children in “Mabrouka” Camps in the Syrian desert.
In its March 6, Al Massae newspaper reported that the Moroccan women have been living in miserable conditions for five months as the wives of Moroccan Daesh fighters, and they will soon be transported to the prison “Rouge” at Ain al-Arab Kobané.
The inmates were arrested near the Al Chadadi border while fleeing an attack by the international coalition.
The inmates are calling on the Moroccan authorities and human rights defenders to intervene urgently to save them from their current dire situation.
Out of the 285 Moroccans who joined Daesh, only 52 have returned to Morocco, while the rest remain in Syria. Only 15 of the 378 Moroccan children residing in Syrian conflict areas have managed to safely return to Morocco.
