Last month the US president threatened to “drop” captured Isis fighters on the UK border if the government does not start repatriating them from Syrian camps.​

The UK government has repeatedly refused calls to repatriate British men, women and children held in Syria, arguing it is too dangerous.

Several suspects, such as Bethnal Green schoolgirl Shamima Begum, and 24-year-old “Jihadi” Jack Letts, have been stripped of their British citizenship.

Two suspected British Isis terrorists, the “Beatles” Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh, have been taken from Syria into US custody amid fears they could escape during the Turkish invasion of northeastern Syria.
