Statement from CENTCOM Commander, General Michael "Erik" Kurilla, on the repatriation of 59 women and children from Syrian conflict zones to Kyrgyzstan


"We are grateful to the leadership of the Kyrgyz Republic for working to resolve the ongoing humanitarian crisis resulting from the dismantling of the so-called ISIS caliphate. The only long-term solution to this crisis remains the successful repatriation, rehabilitation, and reintegration of residents back to their countries of origin. In concert with our regional partners, CENTCOM will continue to support theses repatriation efforts using resources such as aircraft."
