In video, man gives name as Anwar Miah and says he has been in Syria for nearly four years
A man who says he is a pharmacist from Birmingham has been detained in Syria on suspicion of being a member of Islamic State.
A video of the blindfolded man being questioned by members of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a US-backed Kurdish militia, was posted on the Twitter account of International Volunteers Report on Saturday. The group said he had been captured in the city of Deir ez-Zor a month ago.
Around 1 month ago a #YPG #SDF patrol arrested this ISIS terrorist from the city of #Birmingham #UK in #DeirEzzor near #Hajin. He claim he’s only a doctor (Yeah right lol) and that he worked in #ISIS territory for the last 4 years.#TwitterKurds pic.twitter.com/BA9Myxpc4q
