A senior United Nations relief official called on governments on Thursday to help resolve the fate of 2,500 foreign children being held among 75,000 people at al-Hol camp in northeastern Syria after fleeing Islamic State\’s last stronghold.
"Children should be treated first and foremost as victims. Any solutions must be decided on the basis of the best interest of the child," Panos Moumtzis, U.N. regional humanitarian coordinator for the Syria crisis, told a Geneva briefing.
Solutions must be found "irrespective of children\’s age, sex or any perceived family affiliation", he said.
