BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – Dozens of captured Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) members managed to escape from the Al-Hawl Camp in northeastern Syria, the Bas News Agency reported on Thursday.
According to the Bas News report, the Islamic State members bribed some of the guards from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to release them from the Al-Hawl Camp in the Al-Hasakah Governorate of northeast Syria.
Citing an official on the condition of anonymity, Bas News reported that one of the detained Islamic State members paid as much as $75,000 (USD) to be set free from the Al-Hawl Camp.
Since releasing the Islamic State members, the guards have been arrested by the Syrian Democratic Forces and a search operation has begun to seize the terrorists.
Many of the Islamic State members in the Al-Hawl Camp were captured by the Syrian Democratic Forces during their large-scale operation in both northeastern and eastern Syria.
