The Islamic State (ISIS) inmates that attempted to escape from Ghuweiran Prison last night have once again been apprehended by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the Hassakeh province.

According to reports, the SDF was able to restore order after ISIS inmates attempted to breakout of Ghuweiran Prison.

The ISIS inmates that attempted to escape the prison did not make it far in Hassakeh, as some of the terrorists were found at the industrial secondary buildings and the former industrial institute, which are not far from the main facility.

A source said some of the ISIS terrorists managed to get a hold of some light weapons during their prison break, which led to their temporary success.

During the prison break, the US Coalition conducted several low altitude flights over al-Ghuweiran District of Hassakeh; this includes breaking the sound barrier over Ghuweiran Prison.

The Ghuweiran Central Prison houses approximately 5,000 ISIS detainees from 54 countries; it is the largest detention center for ISIS terrorists.
