Australia Government To Repatriate Families of IS Group

Last updated: 2023-03-04 06:14

Australian government decided to censor any further information related to this decision.

Canberra is set to bring back 16 women and 42 children of the terrorists group's members from refugee camps in Syria, following a secret mission by the country’s security intelligence agency, media reported on Monday.

Home Affairs Minister Clare O’Neil had no immediate response to a call by her opposition counterpart for the government to assure Australians that anyone who may have been radicalised posed no threat on their return to Australia.

The Australian Government’s overriding priority is the protection of Australians and Australia’s national interests, informed by national security advice, a spokesperson for Home Affairs Minister Clare O’Neil stated in emailed comments.

But Australian government decided to censor any information related to the decision that may seriously endanger national security, as many experts said.

Given the sensitive nature of the matters involved, it would not be appropriate to comment further, she added.

Critics said that within Australian Labor party are promoted by Obama “specialists”, Islamic-origins themselves, who advocated erroneous soft approach on terror that led to the terrorist attack in other parts of the world.

On Monday Environment Minister Tanya Plibersek appeared to seek an excuse, for what some specialist called Labor's horrifyingly wrong policy, stating  that some women were tricked and married off to Islamic State fighters when they were very young.
