An American citizen fighting for the Daesh terrorist group surrendered to Democratic Union Party (PYD) militants in Syria on Thursday, CNN said in a report.

In a statement released through CNN, US Marine Corps Major Adrian Rankine-Galloway revealed that the Kurdish troops that are being backed up by the US military surrendered an American citizen who is fighting for the global terrorist group on or before Tuesday, Sept. 12. Adrian Rankine-Galloway said in a statement.

Asked earlier Thursday about the reports of an American captured on the battlefield, a spokesman for the USA -led coalition fighting ISIS said it is committed to combatting the group no matter what nationalities its members hold.

The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that opposition activists said the convoy of buses was able to reach Deir Ezzour province, an ISIS-held area, after the coalition ended its aerial surveillance and airstrikes on the group.

The U.S. citizen fighting with the Islamic State has reportedly been taken into custody.

As for her name, Wilson explained, "I went under one of my middle names, Melanie, and my father's surname". She claimed the articles painted her as a "serial liar" who lied her way to her Hollywood career.

Col. Ryan Dillon, the spokesman for the coalition in Iraq and Syria, could not confirm the buses reached their final destination and said the coalition had not had persistent surveillance on them for days.

The SDF, half of whose forces are members of the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG), are backed by the US-led Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS. "As the USA government, we say, 'Don't go do that.' I mean, you can't be very bright, if you're going to go over there and do that".

In March 2016, Mohammad Jamal Khweis, who lived in the Washington, DC, suburbs surrendered to Kurdish forces in Iraq. He was brought to the US for a trial and convicted in June of providing material support to ISIS.

It is not the first time an American citizen fighting for IS has been detained. Earl Brown, told the Daily Beast. It is now illegal to try US citizens at military commissions. "To be clear, the US government does not support USA citizens traveling to Iraq or Syria to join the ongoing conflict".
