According to SOHR sources, a hall was being constructed in the eastern neighbourhood of Al-Qamishly city in rural Al-Hasakah, with the full support of some countries of the International Coalition, including France and U.S.A. The construction of the building was supposed to be accomplished in two or three months, so that ISIS prisoners, hekd in the custody of Syria Democratic Forces, would be tried there.
