Aleppo - SMART

Three prisoners broke out from the Civil Police Prison in the Turkish-backed Syrian National Army-controlled city of Jarabulus, northeastern Aleppo, Northern Syria.

On Sunday, local activists told SMART that on Saturday night, a prison guard helped the three men escape, accompanying them, adding that the escapees are two drug dealers and one man accused of belonging to the Kurdish People's Protection Units.

In August 2018, five prisoners escaped a prison run by the Free Syrian Army's Nour al-Din al-Zenki Movement, but the movement recaptured the escapees after search-and-retrieve operations.
