American Islamic State militant surrenders in Syria

In Syria, the militants have lost much of their headquarters in Raqqa to the SDF with the help of air strikes and special forces from the US-led coalition.

Coalition forces have been battling the Islamic State, also known as ISIL, ISIS and Daesh, from the east side of the Euphrates, while allies of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, which includes Russian Federation, fight the terrorist group from the west side of the river.

In a video briefing to the Pentagon from Baghdad, Army Col. Ryan Dillon, a spokesman for Combined Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve, said, "We have seen the same reports" on an American being held by the SDF.

Those attacks left the 11 remaining buses of the convoy stranded in the desert for two weeks.

The American fighter, whose identity was not released, is not the first American ISIS fighter captured on the battlefield.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi criticized the deal sharply when it was brokered in August. "Moving this number of terrorists for such a long distance through Syria is unacceptable", Abadi told reporters. "Would he have insight on whether they're sending folks away from Iraq and Syria in a systematic way?" The strike occurred as both Russian and coalition forces converged on the former ISIS stronghold of Deir Ezzor.

Conflict monitor Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported on Wednesday the SDF backed by US Special Forces were flushing ISIS militants out of al-Thankanah neighborhood.

The U.S. military has detained an American who was captured in Syria while fighting for ISIS, a Pentagon spokesman confirmed Thursday.
