Children of British foreign fighters stuck in warzones will be left to their fate, the government has ruled.
Sajid Javid made the decision in one of his last acts as home secretary before his promotion to Chancellor of the Exchequer last month,
The Timeshas learnt.
He concluded that it was too dangerous to dispatch military or civilian personnel to rescue babies and minors who have British citizenship from camps in northern Syria.

Alongside the risk to rescuers, there were also concerns that parents who had been stripped of their citizenship could use their repatriated children to claim British citizenship under human rights laws.
The decision, revealed by The Times, will likely spark criticism from children's charities arguing that innocent youngsters should not be made to pay for their parents' mistakes.

None of it is our responsibility, we didn't send them there, their children aren't anything to do with us.
To use that well known phrase " for the many not the few" , Sajid Javid made this decision for the security of the UK
Excellent decision. It's great to see a few UK politicians showing they have some balls.
Anyone who disagrees with this decision should be free to sign themselves up to be party of any rescue mission and put their own lives in danger. It's okay shouting to bring them back without putting themselves in danger to do so. Put up or shut up!
Did they ask for government assistance to get into Syria? No. So why should they have government assistance to get out of Syria?
