Another report on Saturday by The Guardian stated that the fate of several thousands ISIS prisoners is now becoming uncertain, as Kurdish officials have announced that guarding them will no longer be a priority:
“The protection of Isis prisons will not remain our priority,” said an SDF commander during a press conference on Saturday. “The defence of our soil will be prioritised if [the] Turkish military continues its attacks.”
