SDF capture former IS member known as Jihadi Jack
[Iraq News] The Syrian Democratic Forces captured the Briton known as "Jihadi Jack", who joined the Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems....
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 tossed in the clink
... anything you say can and will be used against you, whether you say it or not...
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 maimed in an kaboom.

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.
Leaving the aforementioned wife and child to their fate? What a gallant gentleman, to be sure.
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.

"It’s sort of awkward when the media thinks your ISIS and your not. Thinks you have a son and you dont. Thinks your married when your not," he wrote.
The Daily Mail reminds us that a year ago his parents were charged with terrorism-related offenses for sending him money.
