Activists: Syrian rebels free hundreds from prison

Published: 02.06.14, 17:29 / Israel News

Syrian activists say opposition fighters have seized large parts of the central prison in the city of Aleppo, freeing hundreds of prisoners there. For months, the prison has been caught in the deadly stalemate of Syria's civil war. It is estimated to have around 4,000 prisoners.


The anti-government Aleppo Media Center confirmed rebels had seized most of the prison. However, state-run Syrian television said the army foiled an attempt by "terrorist groups" to attack the prison. (AP)
