The U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have foiled another attempt to smuggle ISIS wives and children from the notorious al-Hawl camp in northeastern Syria.
The Step News Agency said four women affiliated with ISIS had paid a driver $1,000 to smuggle them and their children out of the camp inside his water tanker. The women and their children were able to sneak aboard the tanker. However, they were caught by the Internal Security Forces, “Asayish.”
On September 11, local sources shared a video showing the moment the women were caught by Asayish. In this video shows a female security officer is getting the children, who seem to be in a bad condition, out of the water tanker.
The water tanker driver was reportedly fined $5,000 by the SDF and is set to spend some time in jail for aiding the four women.

The al-Hawl camp, which is located in eastern al-Hasakah, is hosting 67,000 people, including 40,000 family members of ISIS fighters. The SDF is running the camp with support from the U.S.-led coalition.
ISIS wives and their children undertake the attempts to escape from the Camp on a regular basis. The last reported attempt took place on August 29.
ISIS wives are constantly working to implement Sharia law in al-Hawl camp and to spread chaos there. On September 10, the women started a riot, preventing aid workers from entering the camp. At the same time, ISIS terrorists carried out a rebellion in the Industrial Secondary Prison in Ghuwairan neigborhood of al-Hawl.
