The security forces from the Autonomous Administration found the body of an unknown person in Hol Camp on Saturday, the first day of 2022. The dead man was killed by four shots in the head. It is suspected that the perpetrator(s) could be members of clandestine cells of the terrorist group Islamic State or the IS youth organization Young Lions of the Caliphate.
An autopsy should clarify when the victim was murdered. The body was found on New Year's Day in the fourth section of the camp near Hesekê, which houses Syrian internally displaced persons. The Asayîş (Internal Security forces) initiated the investigation into the identity of the victim and started a search for the killer(s).
Hol camp is considered to be a hotbed of ISIS, with a good 57,000 people from over fifty different countries currently living there, including thousands of ISIS families who were apprehended by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) after the capture of the last ISIS bastion, Baghouz, in early 2019. Around half of the families are actually under 18, and many are taught the ISIS doctrine. This increases the danger that a new generation of terrorists will be created. Most countries of origin of these mercenaries and their families refuse to take back their nationals and thus evade their responsibility.
At least 127 homicides in 2021
Responsible for the indoctrination of the children with the ISIS ideology are the structures built by ISIS supporters who are loyal to the line in the “Muhajirat” sector. These women jihadists also built the Hisba troops based on the model of the so-called Al-Khansa Brigade (Liwa al-Khansa), the ISIS religious police for women. This repeatedly commits atrocities against people who do not adhere to the norms of ISIS. In 2021 there were at least 127 murders at Hol Camp, all of which are said to be attributable to the Hisba troops and the “Young Lions of the Caliphate”. A 33-year-old man from al-Bab in northern Syria was only found dead on Friday. A few days earlier, security guards discovered an underground tunnel that was used for training the ISIS youth organization and as a hiding place for young killers.
