Jaysh al-Islam, an armed Syrian opposition group, announced Friday that it took control of the Tal-Kurdi area close to the central prison in Adra, east of the Syrian capital Damascus.

The group released a video showing scenes from Tal-Kurdi, reportedly also displaying bodies of Syrian regime forces.

Meanwhile, sources told Anadolu Agancy that “the aim of the attack is to control the prison and free the detainees in it, especially women.”

Jaysh al-Islam, which is headed by Zahran Aloush, is one of the largest armed opposition groups in Syria, which has significant presence in eastern Ghouta.
