Ghuwayran prison updated developments | ISIS members reject to surrender and clash with military forces, while nearly 400 prisoners transferred to other detention centres

Al-Hasakah province: Reliable sources have informed SOHR that ISIS gunmen stationed and hidden in a section of Ghuwayran prison still reject to surrender.

Meanwhile, the military forces that are stationed in the vicinity of the prison have clashed with the organisation armed members in other hideouts in the prison surrounding areas, while aircraft of the International Coalition are flying over the region.

In the same context, the military forces continue their inspection and combing operations in other sections of the prison and started to transfer the prisoners to more safer areas.

The number of the prisoners who have been transferred by buses to these areas has reached 400 so far. However, SOHR sources confirmed that some unarmed prisoners in some of the prison’s dormitories rejected to leave the prison and staged disobedience by closing the doors to prevent the forces from entering the dormitories of the “Caliphate cubs”, the children who had fought in ISIS ranks.

SOHR activists confirmed that the total death toll since the start of Ghuwayran prison break on Thursday evening has reached 154: 102 ISIS fighters, seven civilians and 45 members of Asayish Forces, prison guards and counter-terrorism forces.

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