American IS fighter surrenders in Syria”

This undated file image posted on a militant website on January 14, 2014, which has been verified and is consistent with other AP reporting, shows fighters from the al-Qaida linked Islamic State in Raqqa, Syria.

An American fighting for ISIS in Syria has been taken into custody after surrendering, multiple spokespeople for the USA military told The Daily Beast.

Several US military officials told the website that Kurdish soldiers belonging to the Syrian Democratic Forces caught the American and he has now been detained.

The group is supported by United States weapons, air strikes and intelligence as they battle IS in Syria, where the fight is now focused on Raqa and the Euphrates River valley.

Earlier, Dillon, said the SDF "has taken note" to ensure that any fighters they capture are brought to "the proper authorities".

"If this was a U.S. citizen it would be the Department of State to find out the updates on that particular person", Dillon added.

The Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation also declined to comment.

Another U.S. military spokesman, Army Maj.

U.S. military officials confirmed the capture to CNN and Fox News.

ISIS' recent defeats have also caused an increase in the number of fighters surrendering to the SDF with Dillon telling reporters that five ISIS fighters, including a local commander, had surrendered this week alone.

He was detained by Kurdish peshmerga forces in northern Iraq in March 2016 and turned over to USA authorities. He was turned over to US authorities and later convicted in federal court in Alexandria, Virginia, of charges including conspiring to provide material support to a terrorist group.

"I don't see them as good Muslims", Khweis said of ISIS.
