The two British Isis members accused of involvement in the beheading of western hostages are being taken to Iraq by the United States military as the Turkish offensive in north-east Syria gets into its second day.
Now expectations are that they will be sent to the United States to stand trial for the murder of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff and U.S. aid worker Peter Kassig.
The U.S. Justice Department has not announced any charges against the men, and it was not clear when or if they might ever be brought to America for prosecution, though Foley said Attorney General William Barr had privately told her that he wanted to see them face justice.
In case the Kurds or Turkey lose control, the United States has already taken the 2 ISIS militants tied to beheadings in Syria, known as the Beetles, out of that country and into a secure location controlled by the U.S. They are the worst of the worst!More news: Flustered Federer says fans inspired him to reach Shanghai quarters
Two British terrorists who were part of an Isis cell known as "the Beatles" have been removed from Syria and taken into USA custody. "It's an abdication of our responsibility to ensure safety for our own citizens and allies".
But guarding those prisoners is now expected to be less of a priority for the Kurdish forces as they rush to defend their territory against the invading Turkish military. The US has since removed Elsheikh, along with fellow British ISIS fighter Alexanda Kotey, from the Syrian prison to an undisclosed location.
Mohammed Emwazi, the man who killed Foley, Sotloff, Kassig and other hostages in 2014, was killed in a drone strike the following year. Attacks had taken place in the immediate vicinity, they said.
He stated the vital therapy included headlocks, punches and stress positions. But he denied any involvement in mock executions or waterboarding. He said Emwazi saw the killing of journalists and aid workers as warranted because they had "come to interfere in our internal affairs".More news: IS militants hit US-backed Kurdish fighters in north Syria
Kotey, left, and Elsheikh, read a news article about themselves during an interview with The Associated Press at a security center in Kobani, Syria in 2018.
A call is expected within the impending weeks from the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom on whether or no longer the British government's offer to section proof on Elsheikh and Kotey, absent a promise from the USA that the men will no longer face the demise penalty, violates British legislation. The other, Aine Davis, was caught in Turkey and jailed for seven and half years in 2017, for being a member of a terror organisation.
"The last thing anyone wants is for the process to be. fudged in order to get them before a court that they can then challenge", he said.More news: Expecting little out of US-China trade talks
