As the channel «al Arabiya» referring to the official representatives of the Iraqi authorities, in the course of hostilities in the North the Iraqi army has detained about 1,400 foreign wives and children of militants of the terrorist group «Islamic state».
Most of the detainees are citizens of Turkey. However, among them a large number of citizens of the States located in the post-Soviet space: Russia, Azerbaijan, and Tajikistan. There are also Germans and French.
Women and children are detained in the camp located South of Mosul. Documents most of them lost, so work is under way to establish their identity. Only after that will decide on their repatriation.
We will add that thousands of militants from European countries and the former Soviet Union went to Iraq and Syria to participate in hostilities on the side of «Islamic state». Only a few of them survived.
