The ministry noted that 10 more repatriated children and two mothers, brought to Azerbaijan from Syria and Iraq, have passed a detailed social work assessment. A social rehabilitation plan has been prepared for them.
Psychological testing was conducted for each person, assessing the severity of post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms.
