American-backed forces in Syria are working to defeat pockets of ISIS fighters in the Middle Euphrates River Valley. They recently captured a man from Dearborn accused of fighting with ISIS.

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.
