The family of a French man who had been fighting in Syria
arrived back in France on Tuesday after having been expelled from Turkey, said
a judicial source.
The source said the family – comprised of the man, two wives and nine children – had been initially arrested in Turkey after traveling to that country from Syria.
Earlier this week, twelve French and two Dutch orphans of ISIS fighters were repatriated to France from Syria.
Authorities in northeast Syria have been urging Western countries to take back citizens who joined ISIS and their relatives after the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) captured the group’s last enclave this year.
