Just over the frontier inside Iraq, the military said Iraqi armed forces dislodged Islamic State from the natural gas-rich Akashat region.
The officials did not give the exact location of the surrender nor the current location of the American.
On Friday, he warned the army and its allies against firing across the river, which he said they had done in recent days.
"We have notified the regime and Russian Federation that we are coming to the Euphrates riverbank, and they can see our forces advancing", he said.
De-confliction efforts were ramped up following a series of clashes several months ago between US-backed forces and forces allied to the regime which resulted in U.S. warplanes downing two drones and a Syrian jet.
Syrian troops and allied forces captured villages on the western bank of the Euphrates on Saturday, state media said. "We do not have a timeline, but we hope soon to free the entire eastern bank".
The SDF entered Raqa in early June, after months of fighting to encircle the city with support from the US-led coalition against IS.
As various fighting forces win victories against ISIS, their focus turns toward Deir Ezzor.
But "right now, we have a schedule that we're following which is the liberation of the eastern riverbanks of the Euphrates", he said. "Several SDF fighters were wounded and received medical care as a result of the strike". "The battles are continuous", he said.
The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that opposition activists said the convoy of buses was able to reach Deir Ezzour province, an ISIS-held area, after the coalition ended its aerial surveillance and airstrikes on the group.
He added, however, that as the two groups converge on the Islamic State position from opposite sides, it will get more hard to stay out of each other's way.
Then-FBI Director James Comey estimated in late 2015 that more than 200 Americans had tried to join the militants in Syria or provided support to those who joined.
Manning said that in Syria coalition military forces conducted 16 strikes against ISIS targets on September 14 near Dayr Az Zawr city and Raqqa.
