The Syrian Democratic Forces said on Wednesday that ISIS is trying, three years after its elimination, to reorganize its ranks, warning of the repercussions of the lack of support from the international community to prevent it.

Wednesday marks three years since the announcement by the Syrian Democratic Forces to eliminate the organization in Syria with the support of the international coalition led by Washington, after violent fighting in the village of Al-Baghuz on the border with Iraq, which formed the last bastion of terrorists in the country.

Despite this, cells of the organization remain hidden in remote mountainous locations, carrying out attacks from time to time against points of the Kurdish forces and their allies, and others of the Syrian forces. Two months ago, he managed to launch a massive attack on a Kurdish-run prison in Hasaka, killing hundreds.

In a statement, the General Command of the Syrian Democratic Forces stressed that “the inaction of the international community and some countries that turn their backs on this file, and the absence of a clear, comprehensive and long-term international plan, increases the risks human and material costs and provides a continuing opportunity for ISIS to strengthen its organization and blackmail and intimidate some of the local communities.”

And he considered that the organization “is trying to revive its dreams again and try to geographically control some areas of Syria and Iraq.”

Since the elimination of the organization, the Kurdish Autonomous Administration has been demanding that the countries in question take back their citizens from the organization’s families and their citizens who are held in prisons.

Despite repeated calls and warnings from international organizations about “catastrophic” conditions, especially in the al-Hol camp in northeast Syria, which is home to terrorist families, most countries refuse to accept back their citizens. Nor did he respond to the call of the Autonomous Administration to establish an international court to judge those who are in its prisons.

“It will be thirty years before children trapped in unsafe camps in northeast Syria can return home, if deportations continue like this,” Save the Children said on Wednesday.

In its statement, the Syrian Democratic Forces warned of the danger of “the narrow approaches of some countries and their refusal to assume their responsibilities regarding the extradition of their nationals from ISIS families and detainees in prisons in northern and eastern Syria, in parallel”. in the absence of the necessary assistance to establish an international tribunal” to try them.

Following the attack on the industrial prison in the Ghweran neighborhood, analysts spoke of the faction’s ability to reorganize its ranks.

The organization suffered a severe blow with Washington’s announcement on February 3 that its leader, Abu Ibrahim al-Qurashi, had been killed in an operation by US forces in northwestern Syria. About a month later, the organization announced the oath of allegiance to Abu al-Hassan al-Hashimi al-Qurashi as its new leader.
