Stacey Meets the IS Brides

Stacey Dooley travels to Kurdish-controlled northern Syria to holding camps where she meets western women who left their countries to join the so-called Islamic State.

Stacey Dooley travels to Kurdish-controlled northern Syria to holding camps where she meets western women who left their countries to join the so-called Islamic State. For now, the Kurds are containing these women. Some of them are still fervent IS supporters, while others say they just want to come home and face whatever consequences the courts decide. Stacey also finds the camps filled with European children.

The Kurds who are in control of this part of Syria are still fighting Russia and Assad’s forces to the south. They say the western powers should not expect the Kurds to be gaolers on their behalf indefinitely. Panorama explores the question of what to do with the IS women and children left behind.
