A captured Israel-Palestinian Islamic State member has pleaded with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to repatriate him.

A captured Israeli-Palestinian Islamic State group member has pleaded with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to repatriate him.

Sayyaf Sharif Daoud made the appeal in an interview with Saudi channel Al-Arabiya published on Wednesday.

"I am asking Netanyahu… I am an Israeli citizen. I know that you are the prime minister of a democratic country," Daoud says in Hebrew.

"You do not discriminate between Arab, Jews and Druze. I am having a very tough time in this prison,"

"I am asking to be returned to Israel. This is my request and I know it's not difficult for you. I promise that I will not return to how I was," he added.

The jihadist from Tel Aviv joined IS in 2015 and was captured by Kurdish-led forces in the Syrian city of Deir Ezzour.

He says he regrets joining the extremist group and denies having been a fighter with them.

Following the collapse of IS's self-proclaimed caliphate, foreigners from nearly 50 countries have been detained in Syria and Iraq.

Over 11,000 of their family members are being held in Syria's al-Hol camp alone.
