Add this to the file on Turkish complicity with the Islamic State and the picture starts to look clear.
Here are two articles on this event.
Helkani identified the man as Mohammed Jamal Amin and said he was carrying with him a large amount of cash, three cell phones and three forms of identification, including a US driving license. The IS fighter is currently being held by the peshmerga troops for interrogation, Helkani added.
Rudaw.net explains the Islamic State fighter was on his way to Turkey.
Which begs several questions.
One of which is why do Islamic State terrorists feel safe in Turkey?
Muhammad Jamal Amin is a Virginia-born American citizen of a Palestinian father and Iraqi mother from Mosul.
According to the Peshmerga commander of the Shingal front who didn’t want to be named, the ISIS militant had mistaken the Peshmerga territory for the Turkish border.
The commander said that Amin had entered Syria from Turkey two months ago from where he had traveled to Mosul.
On his way back to Turkey he had mistakenly walked into the Peshmerga hands.
