A six-year-old girl who was shot in the neck is one of the dozens of sick and wounded Australian children who begged to be rescued from a filthy refugee camp built for Islamic state families.

The child, known as Rand, was detained in the Al-Hawl refugee camp in northern Syria because the ISIS stronghold collapsed earlier this year in the city of Baghouz.

The six-year-old fled the city when it was besieged when a bullet hit her in the neck after she had gone through someone else, The age reported.

Auxiliary groups say the girl has been left with & # 39; nerve damage in her shoulder and arm & # 39 ;.

Rand – who comes from Victoria – is one of at least 30 Australian children who are trapped in the detention camp.

Their desperate families beg the Morrison government to evacuate the children from the camp of 73,000 prisoners, and even offer to take full responsibility for their reintegration into society if the young people can be brought home.

International aid group Save the Children has counted about 22 children in the camp who are younger than 10 years old.

Many of them are considered to be injured as a result of shrapnel and bomb explosions.

Some have left broken teeth, others are malnourished or suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder.

A seven-year-old girl suffers from & # 39; uncontrollable shaking & # 39; and a younger than one year old, born of Australian ISIS members, has been labeled as "premature and extremely underweight".

& # 39; Children die as a result of hypothermia, pneumonia, dehydration or complications due to malnutrition & # 39 ;, said the director of Save the Children, Mat Tinkler.

It is also said that daytime temperatures aggravate children's injuries because the mercury rises to the high 30Cs.

Families have written a letter to Prime Minister Scott Morrison calling on the country's leader to speed up the evacuation process.

& # 39; We are part of the structure of our society and we call on you to act urgently and humanely, & # 39; sets their letter.

& # 39; We are all willing to work with the government. When they return, we help them retrieve the pieces of their lives and rehabilitate them so that other citizens, the country and you will be proud of them. & # 39;

The letter says that other camp prisoners have even threatened the lives of Australian children.

The letter was sent via Save the Children and Mr. Morrison responded four days later on 10 May.

He said that although he & # 39; deeply concerned & # 39; was, he could not guarantee a fast process.

In the past, the Prime Minister has said that priority will be given to young children who have lost their parents.

Three orphaned children of a hunter from the Islamic State could soon be returned to Australia, while political pressure continues to increase.

The Australian has reported that three children, presumably of Bosnian descent, would probably be the first children from the war to return home.

The Australian authorities reportedly worked on moving the children to Lebanon or Iraq, where they would meet an Australian consular officer before they were transferred to Melbourne.

The authorities have also tried to find family members in Australia who could take the children, but it is clear that the young people do not have much in terms of extended family in the country.
