Twenty Suspected IS Fighters Escape From Prison in Syria After Earthquake

About 20 suspected Islamic State terror group fighters have escaped from a Syrian prison during an uprising following the severe earthquakes in the area.

The military prison of Rajo, in northwestern Syria near the Turkish border, holds some 2,000 prisoners, including some 1,300 suspected of having fought for IS.

There are also Kurdish fighters. “After the earthquake, which also hit Rajo, the inmates started a riot and took over parts of the prison,” said a source.
