5 'most wanted' ISIS leaders captured

5 'most wanted' ISIS leaders captured”

The U.S. -led coalition says Iraqi forces in coordination with U.S. -backed Syrian forces have captured five senior Islamic State group leaders.

Iraqi officials have described the ISIS commanders as "some of the most wanted" leaders of the terrorist group.

The two anonymous Iraqi officials said that an Iraqi intelligence unit tracking undercover operations tailed Ismail Alwaan al-Ithawi, an Iraqi known by the assumed name Abu Zeid al-Iraqi, from Syria to the Turkish city of Sakarya, about 99 miles east of Istanbul.

They were arrested by Iraqi authorities after they crossed the border.

The five commanders, one Iraqi and one Syria, were in control of governance for ISIS in Deir Ezzor province in eastern Syria, as well as internal security and overseeing religious rulings.

Iraqi intelligence operatives lured the men into Iraq after capturing a top aide to Al Baghdadi in February and using an app on his mobile phone.

According to Fox News, the ISIS leaders were captured in a joint-sting operation conducted by American, Iraqi and Turkish forces. Those held include Saddam Jamal, a Syrian who served as the group's governor of Syria's eastern Euphrates region.

The coalition between America and Baghdad created to combat terror has been praised after the operation's success.

The ISIS leaders are said to have featured in a series of sick execution videos, filmed when the extremist group controlled large swathes of Iraq.

A reward of $25 million is on offer from the United States for any information which could lead to his arrest.

On April 30, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi pledged to continue airstrikes on Daesh positions and headquarters inside neighboring Syria but stressed that Baghdad would not infringe upon the sovereignty of the Damascus government.
