To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of reports that a number of families that include Daesh members were recently released from the Al Hawl holding camp controlled by the Global Coalition Against Daesh; and whether any such families were allowed to pass into the Al Tanf enclave.

The Global Coalition does not control al Hol displaced persons camp. The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), partners of the Global Coalition, provide security to the camp. We are aware that some Syrians have left al Hol camp for areas of Syria under SDF-control, including Raqqa and Deir-ez-Zour, in a process managed by the SDF and local community leaders. We are not aware of any Syrians leaving al Hol for the al Tanf Deconfliction Zone.
