DETROIT (FOX 2) - More charges have been filed against a Dearborn man accused of fighting for ISIS in Syria.
Prosecutors say 28-year-old Ibraheem Musaibli, a US citizen had been working with the terrorist group since 2015 until he was arrested on the battlefield last summer.
He's charged with providing material support to ISIS receiving military training by the Islamic group and possessing and firing a machine gun against coalition forces.
If convicted - he could get life in prison while the minimum penalty is 40 years.
Musaibli's relatives say he is not an ISIS fighter, saying that he was in Syria to work and study religion.
Musabli, a natural-born U.S. citizen, was detained overseas by Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and was transferred into U.S. custody in July 2018.
"The superseding indictment against Musaibli adds charges to more fully capture his conduct while with ISIS for some two and one-half years," said U.S. Attorney Matthew Schneider. "The superseding indictment alleges that, during that substantial period of time, Musaibli provided material support to ISIS, conspired with others to provide support to ISIS, possessed and fired a machine gun in support of ISIS, and attended an ISIS military training camp. This superseding indictment reflects our commitment to prosecute anyone who supports terrorists to the full extent of the law."
Musaibli's arrest is only the second known instance of a suspected male American ISIS member being captured in Syria.
