Australian Isis orphans are reunited with their grandmother

The 17-year-old is seven-and-a-half months pregnant with her third child and has been diagnosed with severe anaemia.

Morrison said Tuesday his government was "working quietly behind the scenes with the International Red Cross" over the fate of the children.

"Of course we are not putting any Australians at risk in terms of going into these conflict zones".

Sharrouf slipped out of Australia in 2013 on his brother's passport because his own had been canceled due to a conviction for his part in a thwarted terrorist attack plot in Australia. He was a despicable individual. This is a very special brand of evil that he lived.

Sydney-based researcher Madeleine Nyst who specialises in countering violent extremism said the consequences of bringing the children here too early would be serious.

Debate about whether the Australian children of ISIS fighters should be allowed back into the country has been reignited, as the grandmother of the Sharrouf children has made a plea for them to be returned to Australia quickly.

"There are processes to be followed, and there's still a long way to go on these things, and we'll deal with each case - every individual child - on its merits, and follow the proper process".

An Australian grandmother has ended a five-year search for her orphaned grandchildren after finding them, and two great-grandchildren, in a Syrian refugee camp, to which they fled from an Islamic State stronghold.

"Their parents took them to a war zone, incredibly irresponsibly", he told reporters in Adelaide.

Recalling the moment they arrived in Syria, Hoda says they had no idea where they were going when their mother took them overseas.

"These children shouldn't be held responsible for what their parents did".

Mrs Nettleton has not seen her grandchildren since 2014. "They are in a very risky part of the world and Australia is not in a position to offer any safe passage for people who are in that part of the world".

Shorten suggested the children would have suffered "a fair bit of trauma", adding that they would "need a lot of room and a lot love".

"That is my biggest fear, to give birth here", she told Australian Broadcasting Corp.

"Just because their last name is Sharrouf, doesn't mean they are monsters", Nettleton said.

"We weren't the ones that chose to come here in the first place", she said.

"Where there are Australians who are caught up in this situation - particularly as innocent children - we will do what I think Australians would expect us to do on their behalf". "And now that our parents are gone, we want to live", she told Four Corners.

"We would follow the normal processes for issuing of travel documents after all those other matters have been addressed", he said.
