ISIS refugees face humanitarian crisis
The Washington-Post details the horrible living conditions in a refugee camp in Syria populated mostly by women and children:

"Amid a sea of white tents, thousands sleep in communal spaces, and children defecate outside. The war wounded are often left untreated. Thousands more are malnourished. There are just three mobile clinics at the camp, and local hospitals are swollen with patients critically wounded in the war. Those with non-life-threatening injuries often are given painkillers or antibiotics and sent on their way."
