Two of the ISIS members, who are Britishers have been taken in the custody by the United States of America as the Turkish forces have moved into Syria, aimed at the United States backed Syrian Democratic Forces that have facilitated the conquest over the ISIS. The members, namely, Alexandra Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh are known to be the members of the British ISIS who are accused because they were party to allegedly behead the western hostages (including hostages of American journalists, James Foley and Steven Sotloff; British aid workers, namely David Haines and Alan Henning, who were detained in the northeastern part of Syria. The members of the British ISIS group are collectively named as the “Beatles”. The Beatles is an association of three or four Muslims who are British who work for the extremist ISIS (the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant). Their main activities involve taking in hostages, beheading them and making videos of the same and making it accessible to the public at large. It is to be noted that one of their members, Mohammed Emwazi has already been killed in the U.S. drone strike, another, Aine Davis found in Turkey had already been arrested two years before and has been sentenced to a term of imprisonment for a seven and a half years for being in association with a terrorist group organisation. The other two members, mentioned above who were left were arrested last year in 2018 and have been handed now over to the United States military. They were shifted from the Kurdish prison in Syria to the appropriate authorities in the United States.
It has also been reported that U.S President Donald Trump has spoken to the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson on this matter of ISIS prisoners, but it is not very clear whether he was meaning Alexandra Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh or not. Also, the number of prisoners involved in the transfer is still ambiguous.
