An 11-year-old Australian girl who collapsed in a Syrian refugee camp is close to death from malnutrition, charities have warned. 

There are more than 20 Australian women and 40 children, most under six years old, stuck in the overcrowded Al Roj camp in northeast Syria, with many having left for the war-tore nation to support ISIS.

Save the Children wants the federal government to bring back mothers and children stuck in the camp, who may have chosen, been tricked or forced into joining the terrorist group.

‘An 11-year-old Australian girl collapsed due to malnutrition and had to be attended to by ambulance medics,’ deputy chief executive of Save the Children Australia Mat Tinkler told Daily Mail Australia.

‘There are also increasing reports of violence. We fear it’s a matter of time before an Australian child dies.’

It is understood the child received medical attention two months ago but is still at risk of dying.

Most of the Australian children ended up in the camp after being taken to Syria by their mothers, who support ISIS, or were born there.

The United States government has offered support to remove Australians from the camp.

There are estimated to be tens of thousands of people in the overcrowded camp, where children under the age of ten have lived their entire lives.

SHOULD AUSSIES WHO WENT TO SUPPORT ISIS BE ALLOWED BACK?

Mr Tinkler said the Australian children in these camps should be brought back urgently because they are ‘innocent.’

‘The Australian children are innocent and should not be left in these camps – they belong in Australia and our government should urgently repatriate the children and their mothers,” he said.

Foreign Minister Marise Payne has said the government is working with humanitarian groups to support the Australian children in Syrian refugee camps.

‘It is a very dangerous and unpredictable region. We’re talking to our international partners … to humanitarian agencies about the environment on the ground,’ she said at a Senate estimates hearing.

‘[Australia has been] absolutely crystal-clear in consistently warning Australians that supporting or joining terrorist groups in Syria or elsewhere put lives at risk – their own and others.’
