Syrian Kurdish official warns of Islamic State jail break
A senior Kurdish official warned on Thursday that Islamic State militants could break out of prisons in northeast Syria as fighting intensifies between the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and Turkey.

 

Badran Jia Kurd told Reuters the number of security forces guarding the IS detainees would have to be reduced as the Turkish forces step up an offensive that got underway on Wednesday.

 

"This attack will definitely reduce and weaken the guarding system for those Daesh militants in the prisons," he said.
