Rescue of all 60 ISIS children urged as winter nears

Homes for all the 60 British children still stranded in north-east Syria have been found in the UK as councils and relatives of the minors step forward to offer sanctuary, sources have revealed.

So far, three British orphans have arrived home and are understood to have been made temporary wards of court, but will not be placed into care after UK relatives contacted the Foreign Office and said that they wanted to house them.

The move comes amid mounting pressure on ministers to allow all British children who had been caught up in the conflict with ISIS and are trapped in Syrian refugee camps to return to the UK before the harsh winter closes in.

Of the 60 British children in the war-ravaged north-east of the country, a small number are orphans and unaccompanied minors but the majority are with their mothers. Government policy is that the children in Syria should not be separated from their mothers, potentially complicating the repatriation and reintegration process.
