A top Syrian Kurdish official said on Thursday October 10th that Turkish attacks weaken the ability of security forces in northeast Syria to guard prisons holding Islamic State detainees, according to Reuters.

Badran Jia Kurd told Reuters that this may lead to the escape of jihadists and that the number of prison guards is reduced as fighting with Turkey intensifies.
