Prison break: ISIS members escape Raqqa Central Prison
Al Mayadeen sources reported that the scores, maybe hundreds, of prisoners, at Raqqa Central Prison including ISIS members, escaped Raqqa Central Prison following an attack by ISIS.
Al Mayadeen sources reported that the Raqqa Central Prison was attacked at dawn, on Sunday, and that scores, maybe hundreds, of prisoners, including ISIS members, had escaped.
The sources added that the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) armed groups cordoned off the perimeter of the prison and deployed patrols throughout the city while bringing in large military reinforcements.
They also carried out a massive search for escapees in the neighborhoods surrounding the prison.
On January 21, the SDF announced the failure of ISIS's attempt to liberate approximately 3,000 members including some of its most dangerous leaders.
It is worth noting that since 2021, members of the ISIS organization who are detained in prisons controlled by the US-backed SDF have engaged in riots and civil disobedience.
