Kurdish footage shows American-Palestinian IS fighter surrendering

Footage has been released showing Muhammad Jamal Amin, a Palestinian-American IS fighter said to have given himself up to Iraqi Kurdish forces near the Syro-Turkish border.

In the video, filmed by Kurdish Iraqi peshmerga, Amin can be seen with his head bowed surrounded by armed militia men. He answers questions in Arabic about his family history and can be heard confirming he is from the United States and that he is Palestinian. In response to an interrogator’s question, he says he was in the city of Mosul, which is under IS control.

Kurdish news site Rudaw reports Amin was born in Virginia to an Iraqi mother and Palestinian father.
