Dozens of mothers and babies died during childbirth while children suffer from malnutrition and chronic diarrhea in a refugee camp of an Islamic state in Syria.
These are some of the dirty conditions that 70,000 refugees have at the Al-Hawl campsite in northeastern Syria, near the border with Iraq, where there is insufficient medical care and ISIS enforcers do not allow women to remove their veils .
At least 140 refugees, mostly children, died en route to the camp or shortly after arrival since December, according to the International Rescue Committee.
The pregnant Australian orphaned daughter of ISIS terrorist Khaled Sharrouf described her desperation to escape the dire circumstances of the camp when she and her siblings were reunited with their Australian grandmother Karen Nettleton in an emotional reunion on the episode of Four Corners from Monday evening.

Zaynab, 17, currently lives in Al-Hawl with her sister Hoda, 16, and brother Humzeh, eight, along with her two young children after leaving Baghouz's last ISIS stronghold.
Seven months pregnant with her third child, Zaynab suffered from dysentery and severe anemia in the camp, which she desperately wants to leave.
She is terrified of the terrifying prospect of giving birth in the camp.
Zaynab Sharrouf, 17, (pictured on the left with Sister Hoda) is afraid she will be forced to give birth to her third child in Al-Hawl, while women and babies died during childbirth.
& # 39; I think that is my biggest fear of giving birth here because I have heard many stories about people giving birth in their tents and many of them have not finished talking, & # 39; Zaynab told the ABC program.
& # 39; So it's, yes, it's a big fear of me because I'm afraid of that. Some children made it, some children died. It is not a big chance that they will live, not a big chance. & # 39;
Even in their tent, Zaynab and her sister Hoda would not remove their veils because wearing the niqab is strictly enforced in the camp.

Nettleton gave a grateful Zaynab a package of medical supplies, including antihistamines, Panadol and diarrhea tablets for her children Aiesha, 2 and Fatimah, 3, during their reunion.
According to Save the Children, nearly a third of children under the age of five who have been screened in the camp during the past two months are experiencing acute malnutrition and WFP says it has several cases of & # 39; has followed.

Zaynab and her siblings moved from Sydney to Syria with their mother Tara Nettleton and father, ISIS terrorist Khaled Sharrouf to join the Islamic State in 2013.
They are now orphans after their mother died of complications with an illness in 2015 before their father and their two older brothers were killed in an air strike in 2017.
The Sharroufs are among the lucky refugees Al-Hawl that has its own tent.
The unfortunate find shelter with dozens of others in warehouses.
& # 39; 10,000 people live in large communal tents without privacy & # 39 ;, said Paul Donohoe, of the International Rescue Committee to AFP recently.
He added that 5,000 tents are needed to accommodate people, since Al-Hawl was only designed to accommodate 10,000 people, corresponding to one-seventh of the refugees calling the camp home.
