Kurdish-led security forces have made arrests inside a camp in northern Syria holding family members of Islamic State group members.
The operation at al-Hol camp was aimed at rooting out IS followers after violent incidents, some fatal.
Several dozen people are reported to have been killed there this year.
An IS recruiter and eight others were arrested at the camp, which also houses refugees and internally displaced people.
The Internal Security Forces, also known as the Asayish, said it wanted to “cleanse the al-Hol camp of IS cells”. END
