A spokesperson for the US-led coalition fighting ISIS would not confirm that a US citizen was in the custody of the SDF, referring questions to the US State Department.

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.

The unnamed man is not the first American seized for participating in combat for ISIS.

Coalition forces were not party to the deal and were opposed to it.

SDF fighters have been advancing against IS fighters on the east bank of the Euphrates while Syrian government forces and their allies are pushing on the western side against the extremists.

The commander said Syrian troops along with fighters from Hezbollah, Afghanistan's Fatimiyoun, Pakistan's Zeinabiyoun and Iranian fighters will take part in the offensive that aims to reach the Syrian border town of Boukamal that is a main stronghold of the extremists.


The officials did not give the exact location of the surrender nor the current location of the American. In Iraq, ISIS detainees have mostly been killed, with family members herded into a camp in the country's south pending a decision by the Iraqi government on what to do with them. "We don't send them to Syria".

Pro-Assad regime forces, backed by Russian airstrikes, have recently made gains there and linked up with a group of beleaguered regime soldiers that were besieged there for almost three years, according to Syria's state-owned news agency.

But while Deir al-Zor city was not an SDF target, Abu Khawla did not rule out the possibility that it may become one, saying people in the city wanted to be liberated from "the regime and Daesh at the same time".

Dillon told reporters Thursday that closer proximity of the forces will require increased deconfliction, meaning more phone calls between the air forces and ground forces of the two armies.

An American citizen fighting for the Islamic State terrorist group in Syria has surrendered to US-backed forces in the country, a defense official said Thursday.
