ISIS mercenaries have fled from the al-Hol camp in north and east Syria as a result of Turkish attacks on the region, Hawar News reported.
The Turkish Air Force bombed the vicinity of al-Hol where around 53,000 people are interned in the camp with links to the so-called Islamic State (ISIS).
Farhad Shami, the press spokesperson for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) announced on his Twitter account that Turkish warplanes targeted internal security forces that are responsible for protecting al-Hol camp.
Farhad Shami also said that the internal security forces had arrested 6 members of ISIS families, including 3 women, who escaped from the al-Hol camp following a Turkish attack on the camp security forces.
On 22 November, Turkey also bombed an international anti-IS coalition base in the town of Heseke, allowing prisoners to escape.
According to the SDF, as of the 23 November, Turkey had carried out a total of 47 attacks with fighter jets, 20 attacks with drones, and 3,761 attacks with howitzers, artillery, and other weapons throughout the area of northern and eastern Syria.
However, the camp is still under the threat of the Turkish reconnaissance aircraft loaded with rockets and hovering over the camp.
