Five ISIS detainees reportedly broke free from prison in northern Syria after shelling from Turkish forces nearby.

The Independent is reporting that five captured ISIS militants broke free from a prison in northern Syria after a Turkish strike nearby.

Marvan Qamishlo, a spokesman in the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), said, “The [Isis] women rose against the internal security forces at al-Hol, they set ablaze tents and attacked the administrative and security offices there with stones and sticks.”

The SDF produced video footage of the incident, which “showed around 20 fully covered women running in open space with several men appearing to pursue them,” The Independent reported.

A Kurdish official warned on Thursday that detained ISIS fighters could break free as the SDF redirected resources to confront Turkish forces, weakening their ability to guard the prisons.
