Birevan Khaled, co-chair of the Executive Council of North and East Syria's self-administration, warned of the worsening of human suffering inside the Hull camp, "Al Ain" news website reported.

International humanitarian organizations, led by the Red Cross, have warned of the need to return women and children to the country. The warnings came after a stabbing incident against a member of the security forces in the "Holl" camp in northern Syria.

 On Wednesday, "al-Holl" camp witnessed a stabbing incident by a foreign wife of a member of the security forces responsible for securing the place, which led to an increase in the security alert and a curfew on the perimeter of the camp.

She explained to the "Al Ain News" that the number of refugees in the camp south of the south-east Hasaka exceeded 73 thousand refugees, including 8 thousand children and 4 thousand women.

And the danger of the families of ISIS inside the camp, confirmed that it lies in their ideas, especially as there are large numbers of families of the terrorist organization have full faith in all the extremist ideas founded founded on them.

She pointed to the importance of holding seminars and dialogues within the Syrian society to protect children and youth from the spread of violence and extremism, and try to remove these ideas among the families of ISIS.

The Executive Chairman of the Executive Council of North and East Syria's Self-Governing Council noted that human suffering is worsening within the camp because its capacity is beyond the scope of their work, and the role of international humanitarian organizations in supporting camp refugees is lacking.

And revealed that "the camp suffers from a lack of food resources and medicines, especially with the increasing numbers and the accession of families ISIS after the siege of the organization in the recent battles in the Syrian north."

The "Holl" camp was established in the 1990s by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) following the outbreak of the second Gulf War between Iraq and Kuwait. During this period, the camp included some 15,000 refugees from Iraq and Palestine.

After the emergence of the ISIS organization in Iraq and Syria between June and August 2014, the importance of the "holl" returned, and thousands of Syrian and Iraqi families fled the war.

With the organization's control over the town of "Holl" in the Syrian city of Hasakah, the camp turned into a shelter for elements of the terrorist organization. The "holl" was once again under the control of Syria's democratic forces following the liberation of the city in November 2015.
