Dearborn man arrested in Syria on suspicion of fighting for ISIS

Jul 20, 2018

A Dearborn man has been arrested in Syria on suspicion of fighting for the Islamic State.

American-backed forces captured Ibraheem Musaibli earlier this month.

The New York Times says that authorities are working to prosecute him in the United States. He's currently being held in an undisclosed facility.

Musaibli has been described as a high school dropout who moved to Yemen before traveling to Syria in 2015.

Musaibli’s family members in Dearborn say they don't believe the accusations.
