THREE kids rescued in Syria when their family was killed after apparently travelling from the UK to fight for IS could be allowed back here.
Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab says as long as there is “no security threat”, children saved from the fighting could return to Britain.
The BBC reported that three orphaned siblings whose parents are believed to have left London to join IS and died in a battle are now with Save the Children.
The charity has called for them to be given “the best chance of recovery by bringing them to the UK before it’s too late”.
Its spokesman said they and 21 other unaccompanied children were being looked after following the escalation of hostilities.
Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has opened up the possibility of the children coming to the UKSpeaking in the Commons, SNP foreign affairs spokesman Stephen Gethins said: “This is a brutal and unnecessary conflict.
“We have a needless humanitarian catastrophe, and a refugee crisis the Foreign Secretary rightly pointed out but made much, much worse.”
The spokesman for Save the Children added: “We are able to confirm that the three orphaned children featured in the BBC piece were unharmed during the incidents yesterday.
“Children in Syria who have fled Isis-held areas are innocent. They are swept up in horrific events far beyond their control and deserve to be safe and protected.”
