10:07 am
hit a prison where that many islamic state people were being held in that town those people some people are believed to escape and it believes that some of those may have been responsible for this latest bombing and this just gives an insight into the wider danger that the international community are really worried about because there is over 10000 islamic state militants in your heart is being held by the syrian kurdish forces that are on top of that there are tens of thousands of sympathizers family members also being detained what will happen to those people given the fact that this operation does seem to be extending accelerating where will these people go will these people escape trump said it's huge the turks are for it will be turkey's responsibility but it's unclear how turkey will take over sponsibility given the fact that this is increasingly becoming a war so the major concern among the internet community is among those jihad it's believed as many as 2000 foreign nationals some of them are believed to be europeans. russians on from russian area of the region so there is also growing
