SDF to extradite thousands of ISIS suspects to Iraq soon, MP says


Iraq is expected to receive thousands of ISIS suspects from the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the near future as the militant group has been declared fully defeated in Syria, an Iraqi official said.

In a statement, MP Abbas Sarwad, a member of the parliament’s committee of security and defense, said SDF will extradite to Iraq around 28,000 ISIS suspects, 3,000 of whom have already been found guilty for involvement with the militant group.

The 28,000 suspects include thousands of women and children, the statement said, adding that stricter security measures could be taken to monitor the repatriation process.

After a five-year deadly war in Syria, the US-backed Kurdish forces have recently announced the full victory over ISIS.
