As French channel BFMT reports:

The massive and organized return of men and women suspected of having fought in the ranks of ISIS or of being linked to the terrorist organization and now detained in camps in Syria under the supervision of the Kurdish security forces.

This expulsion must occur in the coming weeks, according to our information.

"All those who will return to France will be judicialized and entrusted to the judges," said Tuesday morning Christophe Castaner, Minister of the Interior.

"The Americans are disengaging from Syria… There are now people in prison who are being held because the Americans are there and who are going to be released,” he added.

He added: “They’ll want to return to France.”

Among those in custody in northern Syria is Adrien Guihal is a French Muslim who orchestrated the attacks in France including one in Nice that killed 87 people.

According to a source from the Daily Telegraph: "None of the practical details are fixed so far, nor the nature of any operation to bring them back, nor the exact number of those who would be concerned, nor a possible date.”

Eric Ciotti, a conservative MP from the main opposition party, The Republicans, said:

“The place of jihadists who betrayed our nation and fought our civilization is no longer in France.

“Let them be judged in Iraq or Syria for their crimes and barbarity.”

Marine Le Pen also fiercely criticized Macron's decision and Mr. Castaner’s comments that those in Syria and Iraq “are jihadists, but they were French first“.

She tweeted this morning:

“Non CCastaner, they are jihadists, they should no longer be French.”

But Nadim Houry, director of the counterterrorism program at Human Rights Watch, applauded the move.

She said: “This may be unpopular, but it is the right thing to do. Prosecute those who committed crimes, reintegrate children.”

The decision will make France the first ever Western European country to take back citizens arrested on suspicion of links to ISIS.
