>> “Being here is like being dead”: the testimony of two French women of jihadists, who ask to be repatriated from Syria
Asked about the mothers of families who ask to be repatriated to be tried in France, in particular Estelle who testified on franceinfo, Jean-Yves Le Drian replied: “Estelle will wait again, unfortunately for her”. “It will be necessary to ask the question of how to judge all of these people, but it is not only the French. This question arises in Belgium, in the Netherlands, in Germany”, said the minister.
“We have the same position: the actors of these crimes must be tried on the spot in a process that can only take shape when the military situation is clarified, which is not the case.”Jean-Yves Le Drian
Jean-Yves Le Drian would like to point out that “this area is still a war zone, last week there were armed clashes”. It indicates that “several operations which are almost assimilated to military operations” have already been made “to go and look for these children who had been identified in the camps, with the authorization of the Kurdish authorities who, for the moment, are responsible for these camps. But around the Kurdish authorities, you have Turkish forces, Russian forces , Syrian forces. In short, everyone is in an extremely small space. “
Currently, “there are a few hundred French” in the camps in Syria, but also “A few thousand foreign fighters and there are several tens of thousands of Iraqis and Syrians in the same camps. So this is a very big problem.”, adds the Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs.
