star this property answer text <p>​Our understanding is that Al Hol and Roj remain in control of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). The SDF, under pressure from the Turkish offensive, reached a military agreement with the Syrian regime on 13 October, resulting in the movement of regime forces into areas controlled by the SDF but to date the SDF maintains administrative control over these areas, including Al Hol and Roj. We continue to monitor developments closely.</p> more like this

If a minor is unable to do so, a request can be made on their behalf. British nationals can also call the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) in London 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

We fully support the peace process led by the UN Special Envoy, Martin Griffiths, and urge the parties to engage constructively with this process. On 26 September, the UK co-hosted a political event at the UN General Assembly to coordinate the international community’s support for the UN-led peace process and endorse the Special Envoy’s plan to begin wider political discussion. On 17 October, the UK Permanent Representative to the UN made a statement to the Security Council regarding the situation in Yemen, where she welcomed the reduction in violations of the Stockholm Agreement and called on all parties to immediately comply with Security Council Resolution 2451.</p><p> </p> more like this
