US troops are evacuating wives of Daesh* terrorists from the Al-Hawl refugee camp in Syria amid the Turkish offensive in the Arab country, Ikhbariya broadcaster reported on Sunday.

US helicopters are circling the camp in the course of the evacuation operation, the broadcaster stated.

On Monday, US media reported that the US forces failed to evacuate around 50 “high-value” Daesh detainees from Kurdish jails in northeastern Syria amid the ongoing Turkish military operation in the area.

On October 7, President Donald Trump announced the withdrawal of US troops from northern Syria. Defence Secretary Mark Esper said last week that the United States would pull out an additional 1,000 servicemen from the area near where Turkey launched its military offensive.

Turkey began Operation Peace Spring in northern Syria on October 9 with the aim of setting a 20-mile buffer zone free of any Kurdish presence along its border with Syria. Damascus has called the operation an invasion, while the US and EU have imposed sanctions and embargoes against Turkey.
