Turkish-backed forces w/ ties to extremist groups are deliberately releasing ISIS-affiliated detainees, two U.S. officials tell @ForeignPolicy.

This pours cold water on Trump's "dishonest" tweet that the Kurds released the prisoners to get U.S. attention https://t.co/thpMYgBAiR

Backed by Turkey, the FSA is accused of committing war crimes during the 2018 assault on Afrin, including mutilating the bodies of YPG fighters and destroying places of worship.

Now the group--perhaps the same fighters--seems to be employing the same illicit tactics in NE Syria

U.S. officials tell @FoxNews Turkish artillery units are “intentionally” shelling Kurdish-run prisons in Syria allowing ISIS fighters to escape. Any indication Kurdish forces have released them is Turkish propaganda.
