THE Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) managed to crush a riot by Isis militants in a prison in north-east Syria yesterday.
The jailed jihadists rose on Sunday, breaking down doors and digging holes between cells, and at one point controlled the entire ground floor of the prison, SDF spokesman Kino Gabriel said.
He added that the situation in Hassakeh was “fully under control” and that all prisoners had been secured. Four who were reported to have escaped had been recaptured. About 10,000 former Isis fighters are held by Kurdish forces, which played a major role in defeating the terror group in the country.
Syria reported its first fatality from Covid-19 yesterday, but the SDF said the rioting was not connected to fear of the virus. Damascus has ordered the closure of schools, restaurants and nightclubs, but a decade of war has seriously weakened the country’s health service.
