Nearly 800 people affiliated with Isis escaped from a camp in northern Syria on Sunday, Kurdish officials said.

An estimated 785 people are reported to have fled amid a Turkish offensive in the area, with many in the severely depleted Kurdish guard force forced to leave their posts to join the fighting.

Northern Syria’s Kurdish-led administration said mercenaries had attacked the Ain Issa camp where Daesh elements in turn attacked camp guards and opened the gates.

There is a state of anarchy inside the camp, according to Syrian Observatory for Human Rights director Rami Abdulrahman, citing sources inside the holding facility.

The camp houses some 12,000 displaced people, including about 1,000 families affiliated with Isis, who have been fearful of the approaching military advance, SOHR said.
