Reliable sources have informed the Syrian Observatory that prisoners of the Islamic State tried to escape from the central prison in Raqqa, where the attempt took place late at night.
However, prison guards discovered the escape attempt and fired at the prisoners who tried to escape, injuring two prisoners.
It is worth nothing that the prison is located near al-Raqqa mills and houses prisoners of the Islamic State, most are Syrians.
On September 20, reliable SOHR sources confirmed that Syria Democratic Forces managed to put an end to the new riot in al-Sena’aa prison in Ghuwayran neighbourhood in al-Hasakah city, which hosts ISIS prisoners.
SDF reopened all corridors to the prison, as they have been being closed since yesterday evening.
