“The group consists of 4 men, 1 woman and 7 children, including 2 orphans. In accordance with national legislation and international obligations, persons involved in terrorist activities will be prosecuted,” the ministry’s press service said.

Orphans are transferred to the care of close relatives and the state will provide them with all the necessary assistance. The woman and children will be included in the rehabilitation and resocialization programs.

The operation to repatriate citizens from zones of terrorist activity, sanctioned by the President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, was a continuation of Operation Zhusan, initiated by Kazakhstan’s First President Nursultan Nazarbayev.
