The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) managed to free nine people held captive by ISIS and took control of a building in Sina’a prison.
In another operation, Kurdish militants arrested three ISIS terrorists who were trying to transfer ammunition to ISIS in al-Sina’a prison. In the east of Ghuwairan neighborhood, nine ISIS members, including two suicide bombers, were killed by SDF forces.
On the other hand, the ISIS claimed that 12 Kurdish militants were killed and three armored vehicles were destroyed during the clashes in al-Sina’a prison.
The operation to clear al-Sina’a prison is still ongoing by Kurdish militants, and ISIS elements are still resisting.
