Recently, the United Nations (UN) reported that children of some Islamic State (ISIS) fighters are likely being held in secret detention facilities and are not allowed contact with family members, even those who are not part of ISIS. While this is yet another example of family separation, it also reflects how deplorably children are treated during and after conflict particularly when they are stigmatized by terrorism. Children of ISIS fighters or those associated with the group, numbering around 3,000, have already long suffered because of their parents choices, including from horrific living conditions inside camps as the so called caliphate falls apart. For example, the infant of Shamima Begum, an ISIS supporter who left the UK at age 15 to travel to Syria, recently died of pneumonia, a highly preventable and curable disease, because of a severe lack of health care resources in the detainment camp in which Begum had been living. But governments both those who currently house detainment camps for foreign fighters and their families and those whose citizens went abroad to fight with ISIS need not further punish these children for the sins of their parents.
