The Syrian Democratic Forces captured the Briton known as “Jihadi Jack”, who joined the Islamic State in Syria in 2014, Qasioun News reported on Wednesday.
The 21-year-old Jack Letts (Known as Jihadi Jack) is currently imprisoned by Kurdish forces, however, he claimed abandoning the Islamic State group and its ideology.
Jihadi Jack also claimed that he was deceived by the Islamic State, but he quit after witnessing the group killing their own supporters, while said that the terrorist group jailed him three times and threatened to kill him.
Letts converted to Islam while attending high school and travelled to Jordan in 2014, then moved to Syrian Raqqa in the same year.
He got married in Iraq, however, his wife and child are still in the Islamic State-held territory, while he revealed that he went to Raqqa to recover after being wounded in an explosion.
According to Daily Star, Jack said he linked with a people-smuggler who helped get him out of the Islamic State-controlled territory before being captured by the Kurds.
Noteworthy, in a news report published last year by “The Independent”, Letts has dismissed reports that he is a member of the Islamic State and accused the media of demonizing young Britons who convert to Islam and publishing lies about him because of his Islamic faith.
