On January 20th, car bombs were triggered to explode near the prison in the Syrian city of Hasakah where nearly 3,500 ISIS prisoners are held. Once the prisoners realized what has happening they attacked guards, obtained weapons and engaged the SDF quick reaction force.

Footage emerged on social media of American Apaches and F-16 performing strafing runs on the facility. Tanks and other armored vehicles have also been dispatched in response.

An SDF spokesperson said on Monday the SDF was consolidating its positions around the complex, noting that 300 prisoners had surrendered. Twenty-two SDF soldiers and 45 ISIS fighters have been killed in the process.
