Relatives of Swedish children in Syria, accusing the government of inaction

in the Midst of the EUROPEAN election campaign contend the government even with how Sweden should deal with the IS-terrorists ' children, who are in camps in northern Syria. In the camp, al-Hol children were dying daily due to malnutrition and diseases.

on Wednesday landed at Landvetter seven orphaned children who have been stuck in al-Hol camp after their parents were killed earlier in the year. The parents both had acceded to the ICE. The children's maternal grandfather, Patricio Gálvez, went to Syria and managed with the Swedish and kurdish authorities to help get the homes of their grandchildren. The children were taken into care by the social authorities in Gothenburg, sweden.

and the concerns of the families of the children that are still stuck in Syria. According to the authorities in the north east of Syria are 57 children with a connection to Sweden in the camps. Almost all of them are under the age of ten. Few are orphans, but most are living with their mothers. According to the lists that the DN received from the lägermyndigheterna are 25 Swedish mothers in the camps, of which 21 are widows.

" the Children are Swedish citizens and the innocent, says a father who has two children in al-Hol camp.

the Children's mother, traveled without his knowledge to Syria and joined IS. The other day, got the father a picture sent to him on one of his children in the camp.

" He was just emaciated. It was terrible to see, and to not be able to provide some answers to the question: What is Sweden doing?

in the camp of hate IS, and is afraid that inaction from Sweden can benefit the islamic extremists.

play straight in the ICE-sect hands. They have skilled propagandists can say: ”you See, you thought you were Swedish, from the Swedish government to help Swedish children. But it was not you.” From a purely security perspective, should Sweden take home the kids as quickly as possible, " says the father.

A grandmother with two small grandchildren in the camp has sporadic contact with his daughter who is in al-Hol with the kids. The daughter describes a lägertillvaro in constant fear of night raids in which the military firing with automatic weapons next to the tents where the children sleep. The grandmother in Sweden was crying in the phone when she talks with DN.

" My grandchildren are jättesmå. The boy hovered for a while between life and death, but has become more stable now. I am afraid that they will not survive the summer, when the heat comes and the disease is spreading.

on a straight question about the children previously responded that Sweden does not have the ability to operate in the area because it is not secure. Then the government's message shifted. Minister for foreign affairs Margot Wallström (S) has said that the children will get to come home ”if it is possible”.

the Issue is described internally in the government which is very complex. Officials from several different departments working with to review opportunities that fit within the framework of Swedish and international legislation.

A proposal right now are discussed at the department of justice is to download the children, but without their parents – with the parents ' consent. One of the issues that the department, according to DN's sources working with is how to find a line that does not contribute to the ' supranational barnbortförandehantering”.

" I know that there is a discussion taking place right now. It talks about trying to get the guardians to refrain their children, says a source with good insight to DN.

to separate children from their parents abroad with the parents ' consent, it is considered at the government offices to be very complex. A consent under the difficult circumstances that prevail at the site are not necessarily to be regarded as a clear statement.

Minister for foreign affairs Margot Wallström did not want to talk about the proposal to separate mothers and children in Syria when the DN met her last Friday.

" I don't even want to discuss it theoretically. Now you have to deal with the reality that is there. We take it day by day. We try to start by looking at where the greatest needs are. What we can observe, what data can we obtain and confirm and what it is that has all the most necessary, and what is possible to do. It may seem bureaucratic to some, or that it takes a very long time. But it is the correct way to do things, " she says.

”there are many claims about the lists and the identities that are not at all confirmed,” and that the government has not been able to get enough data to say something peremptorily.

– It is why it both takes time and is a delicate work. Therefore, we can't go out and promise anything about the results.

the Government also wants to avoid criticism in order to help potential ICE-terrorists and their children, while the victims end up in the dark. Margot Wallström underlines that it is looking at how the country can support IS the victims.

" It's all about what we do to help the group yazidier, those who are victims of sexual violence and who really suffered from ICE damage. I think it is important for the public opinion in Sweden, where many say ”oh, so you should only help those who had been on the förövarsidan” some of these women have also fought for the ICE and contributed to their atrocities, " she says.

the alarm about the poor conditions in al-Hol camp. It is particularly bad, according to the charity, in the part of the camp where the Swedish children and their mothers live. Where there is not access to medical care, and pregnant mothers are forced to give birth in their tents.

In the al-Hol is a hard atmosphere there IS människofientliga ideology is still maintained by many women. The who does not wear niqab, the veil that covers the face, is at risk of violence and harassment from other women. Relatives in Sweden has received reports about the links with women who formed a kind of moralpolisstyrka who whips and beats women, which according to them does not behave correctly.

One of the mothers who are trapped in the al-Hol is Helena from Gothenburg, sweden, in today's 25-year-old woman who converted to islam as a teen and that quickly radicalised. Helena, which is actually called something else, has given birth to three children in Syria. One of the children has died, according to Helena's father who DN have spoken with.

together with a reportageteam from the Göteborgs-Posten. He got to meet his daughter and grandchildren outside of the camp. Helena was sick and unhealthy, and was the father barely walk.

" She looked like a skeleton. Now she has constant diarrhoea and further deterioration. I am afraid that the children will be orphans if she doesn't come from there, " says the father.

From the foreign MINISTRY, the father received the news that Helena and her children are ”a high priority humanärende” – but what that means in practice, he does not know.

" I think that UD sticking your head in the sand. I understand that they are connected to the ICE might have committed the crime – but then take them home and judge them at home. This is an acute situation where people are about to die.
