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.
The Russian airstrike came as the Syrian government forces backed by Moscow and the US -led coalition forces are in closer proximity in the battle against ISIS.
The strike Saturday east of the Euphrates River near Dayr Az Zawr hit "a location known to the Russians to contain Syrian Democratic Forces and coalition advisers", the US -led coalition said in a press release.
He said that five ISIS fighters, clutching leaflets urging surrender dropped by the US on Raqqa in eastern Syria, had turned themselves into the SDF but that a USA citizen was not among them. Earl Brown, a spokesman for U.S. Central Command, which oversees military operations in the Middle East.
CNN also said in the piece that a State Department official told the news network the department was "aware of the reports" but said that they "have no information to share at this time".
USA officials have estimated that 40,000 foreign fighters have flowed to Iraq and Syria to join the Islamic State and other groups since the conflict there began.
But the fighter captured this week is the first American captured since President Trump took office, presenting a test of how Trump will handle USA citizens suspected of terrorism overseas. Some military spokespeople suggested that the fighter "surrendered" on or around Tuesday.
