They have to serve prison time for treason or joining a terrorist group. They have to face the consequence of their actions.
How should the government deal with returning jihadists?

I don’t see any nation “struggling” in regards to this issue. Stances seem pretty clear all across the board: a big NOPE.
I don’t see anything to struggle over, I’d give them a choice. Stay where you are or come home to a life sentence in solitary confinement.

Or turn them over to the Assad regime - they’ll take care of them.

The Assad regime's prisons are infamous engines of radicalization that the government empties the moment it seems strategically convenient.
Bring them home and execute them for treason. Problem solved.

Yup, you love locking people up, all the good it does.

Not quite sure where you got that impression. Rational options to address these specific circumstances seem clear. As citizens of X country, I’m not sure we can deny them reentry if they push the issue. Either way, if allowed to return, seems foolish to let these individuals to roam about potentially spreading their hate to others and indoctrinating them. So, stay where you are or be locked up in solitary (solitary because again, I don’t want them expressing potentially extreme views to others in gen-pop). My perspective is sound. No, I’m not a fan of locking people up but given the circumstances what is the rational alternative?
I'm sorry, but aren't we supposed to encourage people to admit their mistakes and leave such dangerous and inhumane conditions? What you are basically saying is that a 15-year that wants to escape a bad decision should be forced to live with her newborn in a place where body parts are found in the dumpster.... In my world, any person who wants to return from such a place should be let to do so, even if not forgiven for leaving. I'm sure there are more humane ways of dealing with a disturbed pregnant teenager than this. This sets a really bad example for other people that might want to escape ISIS but now fear that there is no other option than living in that hell.

“What you are basically saying is that a 15-year that wants to escape a bad decision should be forced to live”, you hit the nail on the head. This is precisely what I am saying. There are some decisions in life which have zero point of return. Sadly (if you choose to be saddened by these folks, your call entirely), this is one of those cases.
