IS Caliphate Exodus Overwhelms East Syria Hospitals

Wednesday 3 April 2019

DAMASCUS (AFP) — An exodus of jihadist families and civilians from the Islamic State group’s vanquished final enclave is overwhelming eastern Syria’s hospitals.

Young children nursing severe facial burns, others suffering from malnutrition, most arrivals are women and children from Al-Hol, a camp for the displaced that has swelled far beyond its capacity to house more than 70,000 people during a months-long offensive against the last scrap of the jihadists’ caliphate.
