The Kurdish Asayish police has arrested three ISIS suspects in Afrin district, in Syria’s northwestern Aleppo province.

The suspects were detained by the Kurdish forces nearly 10 days ago, while trying to flee Syria into Turkey, the Asayish said in a statement on Tuesday.

The Kurdish police said the three ISIS jihadists were arrested subsequent to an investigation of their personal information, after they were stopped at a checkpoint.

After interrogation, they finally confessed they belonged to ISIS and travelled across different areas under ISIS-control, such as Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor.

The suspects also confessed that they have participated in many ISIS battles.

Subsequent to the investigation, the suspects were referred on Wednesday to the court of the Rojava Self-Administration.
