New riot | SDF put on high alert, as ISIS prisoners riot in Guayran prison

SOHR sources have monitored the SDF putting on a high security alert in the city of Hasaka, as prisoners of the Islamic State riot in the prison of Guayran in al-Sina’a neighbourhood in Al-Hasakah city.

This comes ten days after the end of a riot by the Guayran prisoners after SDF’s security forces arrested several prisoners who were digging tunnels to try to escape outside the prison. 

On September 9, SOHR reported a riot by ISIS prisoners in Ghuwayran prison in Al-Hasakah. The prisoners destroyed the cells’ walls and reached the prison’s courtyard, demanding that their relatives be allowed to visit them and called for fair trials. Meanwhile, SDF and Asayish Forces have cordoned off the area around the prison, amid flights by International Coalition helicopters over the area.
