A high-ranking Iraqi security official has called for the dismantlement of a refugee camp controlled by US-backed Kurdish militants near the Iraqi border in Syria, saying the camp, which houses thousands of Daesh terrorists, poses a “real threat” to his country’s national security.

“The presence of the al-Hawl camp in eastern Syria represents a real threat because of the presence of 12,000 terrorists in it, and there are attempts by Daesh to penetrate it,” al-Araji told an international conference about the camp held in Baghdad, the Iraqi News Agency reported on Saturday.

The camp is located on the southern outskirts of the town of al-Hawl in Syria’s al-Hasakah Province, where US occupation forces and its allied militants are actively present. Besides the internally displaced, families of Daesh terrorists also reside there.
