Several ISIS fighters allegedly break out of prison in northeast Syria
A number of ISIS fighters have reportedly broken out of a prison in the northeastern region of Syria, as local activists reported via social media.
The inmates escaped the Ghweiran prison that is run by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and houses 3,000 ISIS terrorist militias.
Following the prisoners' escape, warplanes of the US.-led anti-terror coalition flew over the prison and dropped flare bombs.
The SDF controls large swathes of Hasakah Province and the areas in the eastern Euphrates River region in eastern Syria.
The SDF also captured hundreds of ISIS terrorist militants during battles in northern Syria.
