The terrorists were arrested in a raid.
Today, Tuesday, the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) said in a statement “The operations resulted in arresting one of the ISIS emirs along with two other terrorists who were responsible for supplying the terrorist cells with weapons and ammunition in an attempt to target the prisons and al-Hol camp.” The camp houses thousands of ISIS family members and former ISIS officials.
"In conjunction with the aggressions of the Turkish occupation and its mercenaries on the regions of NE Syria, the ISIS terrorist cells were active, attempting to attack various areas, including Deir Ezzor, al-Hol, and Tal Hamis, taking advantage of the Turkish aggressions," the SDF press center added. Turkey has threatened a large-scale ground invasion in Rojava, similar to that of Russia and Ukraine, an invasion that the US and its allies have warned could help ISIS regroup.
The SDF press center published a video of SDF anti-terror unit raiding a house where the terrorists stayed. The special forces also seized a large number of weapons and ammunitions. The SDF revealed the location of the ISIS terrorists in the statement. "The operations were conducted in the town of the al-Hol, Tal Hamis, and Deir Ezzor, from the seventh to the tenth of this month," per SDF press.
The SDF has spearheaded the fight against ISIS in Norther Eastern Syria and have formed one of the most democratic polities in the world, where woman lead in peaceful democratic ways.
