Kurdish security forces ended the uprising that broke out on Sunday in a prison holding supporters of the Islamic state in northeastern Syria, a Kurdish official reported Monday.
Islamic state residents took control of Hasaka prison for several hours on Sunday until the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDS) negotiated an end to the mutiny.
“The situation in prison was controlled after a one-day uprising that ended in negotiations between representatives of our armed forces and the forces of the international coalition on the one hand, and the detainees on the other,” said the SDS spokesman. Kino Gaberial, in a statement.
The spokesman gave no further details and did not clarify how many prisoners participated or whether there were victims. The same prison was the scene of a similar uprising in March.
