Two IS women have arrived at Schiphol Airport from Turkey and have been handed over to the police. One of the women has two children. 

The two women are suspected of participating in a terrorist organisation, NOS reports. One of the women has had her Dutch nationality taken away.

One, a 25-year-old woman, also has two children aged 3 and 4-years-old. She reported to the Dutch embassy in Ankara at the end of October, but the Dutch government informed Turkey that the woman was an unwanted foreigner and should not be deported to the Netherlands.

Turkey sent her back to the Netherlands anyway, where she was refused entry at Schiphol and subsequently arrested. If convicted during prosecution and trial the cabinet wants to deport the woman to Morocco, where she holds her second nationality. Her children have been transferred to the Child Protection Board.

The other woman is 23 and was arrested in January 2018 in Turkey.

Both women will face an examining magistrate in Rotterdam on Friday.
