BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 A.M.) – A 28 year old U.S. national believed to have been fighting with the Islamic State (ISIS) was captured by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the Euphrates River Valley of eastern Syria this month, the New York Times reported on Thursday evening.

According to the NYT report, Ibraheem Musaibli of Dearborn, Michigan was attempting to escape from the Euphrates River Valley, when he was apprehended by the US-backed forces.

Upon his capture, Musaibli was reportedly transferred to an SDF holding facility, where he was identified as a member of the Islamic State by another detainee.

Musaibli will be transported from Syria to the United States, along with Samantha Al-Hassani, who is the wife of a former Islamic State member from Indiana.

The U.S. national will be prosecuted upon his return to America, the NYT report added.
