Confirming SOHR director reports | ISIS broadcasts videos showing guards hostages

 

 

SOHR activists have reported that ISIS recently broadcasted videos showing their fighters holding guards of Ghuwayran prison hostages in Al-Hasakah.

 

Moreover, the videos showed the bodies of nearly 20 prison’s guards. This was already confirmed by SOHR’s founder and director during interviews.

 

 

 

The Syrian Observatory monitored a spike in the death toll of ISIS fighters, at least 61 members were killed. The number of deaths is likely to rise further amid reports on other deaths, while the fate of dozens of prisoners remains unknown.

 

The total death toll since the start of Ghuwayran prison break yesterday evening has reached 102: 61 ISIS fighters, seven civilians and 34 members of Asayish Forces, prison guards and counter-terrorism forces.

 

Observatory asserts that the death toll was even higher, and the real number of fatalists was not exactly identified, as the fate of dozens members on both sides still unknown. In addition, there were many people sustained serious injuries.
