According to reports, the flights are concentrated in the southern part of the city, where the Islamic State terrorists were said to have broken out from the Al-Ghuweiran Prison in the Industrial area of the administrative capital.

ISIS terrorists in a prison inside northeastern Syria attempted to breakout for the second time in two months, local reports said on Sunday. According to the reports, ISIS prisoners at the Ghuweiran Prison (also known as Industrial Prison) reportedly rioted and attempted to breakout of this industrial district of Hasakah city.

The reports said that the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are attempting to restore calm to the area and arrest the Islamic State terrorists that are attempting to escape the Industrial District.

Furthermore, the U.S. military and SDF have since cordoned off the Industrial District to prevent any Islamic State terrorists from possibly escaping the capital city.

This prison is also home to the largest amount of Islamic State terrorists in all of Syria, as most of these militants surrendered to the Syrian Democratic Forces over the last three years.

Citing local sources, the monitor reported that the U.S. military is expanding their base in the Istrahat Wazir area of the Al-Hasakah Governorate. The monitor released several pictures from the site, showing the expansion by the U.S. Coalition forces.

The SOHR reported that as many as 30 trucks from the U.S. Coalition entered northeastern Syria from neighboring Iraq while Iran backed Iraq’s Hezbollah al-Nujaba Movement claims in a statement that the U.S. is planning to ‘transfer’ senior Islamic State commanders and other terrorists to Iraq.
