An American member of ISIS surrendered to the Iraqi military earlier today. The man was identified as Mohammed Jamal Amin, 27, from Virginia.

Amin surrendered on Monday morning at an inspection point near the town of Sinjar. Amin was carrying a large amount of cash, three cellphones and three forms of identification, including a United States driver’s license.  Amin was born in Virginia to a Palestinian father and Iraqi mother from Mosul.

Amin had mistaken Peshmerga territory for the Turkish border.  Reports state Amin had entered Syria from Turkey two months ago and traveled to Mosul in Iraq.
