BEIRUT: Doctors Without Borders (MSF) has deplored the fate of thousands of children living in “a giant open air prison” at Syria’s notorious Al-Hol camp.

Al-Hol is the largest camp for displaced people who fled after Kurdish-led forces backed by a US-led coalition dislodged Daesh fighters from their last scrap of territory in Syria in 2019.

In the country’s northeast near Iraq, Al-Hol is overpopulated with more than 50,000 residents including relatives of suspected terrorists, displaced Syrians, and Iraqi refugees.
