SYRIAN ARAB REPUBLIC : North East Syria: Al Hol camp -13 1 2020 [EN]


As of January 2020, the population of Al Hol is 66,101 people (18,208 HHs); comprising of 46 per cent Iraqis (30,724), 39 per cent Syrians (25,780) and 15 per cent third country nationals (TCNs) (9,597). The population has slightly decreased since our last update, due to some residents returning to their areas of origin. Since June 2019, 4,085 residents have departed Al Hol, including more than 2,622 Syrians and around 1,430 Third Country National (TCN) women and children. In December 2019, 907 IDPs departed for Deir-ez-Zor and in January, 315 IDPs left for Ath Thawra town in Ar-Raqqa under tribal sponsorship arrangements. Among TCNs, in mid-December, 10 Bosnian adults and one child and two Finnish children were repatriated to their countries. On 9 January, the Belgian government announced plans to repatriate ten children living in the camp with their mothers.
