American ISIS supporters held by Kurds back in our custody: U.S.

Every American supporter of the Islamic State (ISIS) known to be held by Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in Syria has been returned, the United States said on Thursday.

In a statement, the U.S. Department of Justice said two alleged U.S. Islamic State supporters made court appearances in Florida on Wednesday for charges of providing the group material support. That brings the total number of U.S. citizens back in custody from Syria and Iraq to 27, and among those, 10 face charges, it said.

“The United States has brought back every American supporter of ISIS known to be held by the Syrian Democratic Forces against whom we have charges,” Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Demers said, calling the effort a “moral responsibility.”
