Australian women and children stuck in northern Syrian camps have offered to be placed under restrictive control orders if the Australian government will bring them home.

The situation in northern Syria has become dramatically more dangerous, including for those in the camps, after the US president, Donald Trump, declared US troops would be leaving, paving the way for a Turkish invasion.

While the UK government and other European nations have flagged taking advantage of a five-day ceasefire to repatriate their own citizens, the Australian government has maintained its position that it would not risk a single Australian life to retrieve anyone, and that their return could pose a risk to the community.

There are about 65 Australians, the wives and children of Isis fighters, in the al-Hol camp, and a group of 36 – mostly from Melbourne and mostly children – have formally suggested they could be placed under restrictive anti-terrorism control orders.
