An Australian doctor now working with ISIL in Syria has announced on social media that he does not care if his citizenship is stripped.

Tareq Kamleh, a 29-year-old doctor from Perth, left Australia to join the terrorist organisation earlier this year, according to police.

Authorities have issued an arrest warrant, which means Mr Kamleh can be arrested upon his return to Australia.

Earlier today Mr Kamleh addressed the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) in a Facebook post declaring he was “not concerned” about the warrant for his arrest or his Australian citizenship.

“I no longer consider myself an Australian,” he wrote.

“I anticipated an arrest warrant, hence why I left in secret.”

The AHPRA said the Medical Board of Australia has begun to take action over Mr Kamleh’s medical registration as he is still a legally registered doctor in Australia.

Since leaving Australia for Syria Mr Kamleh, now Abu Yusuf, has appeared in an ISIL propaganda video urging other doctors, nurses and dentists to travel to Syria to help the terrorist organisation.

In the video he says he has no regrets about his decision to leave Australia.
