(PM) – Fighters from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) have breached several prisons in Northern Syria on Friday, according to ABC. These breaches come amid the Turkish invasion of the area.
At 2:10 AM local time on Saturday, an explosion reportedly occurred in front of a prison where ISIS militants were held. The explosion was near the central prison in the Ghiweran neighborhood in Al-Hasakah City, according to Al Hadath.
The explosion occurred due to a car bomb. The prison holds thousands of ISIS fighters, according to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
Earlier today, at least five ISIS militants broke out of a prison in northern Syria after Turkey shelled Qamishli city, an area controlled by Kurdish-led SDF.
ISIS claimed responsibility for a VBIED attack in the Qamislo area, which killed at least one person and injured five others.
