“Dangerous” IS Militant Captured in Western Iraq
Iraqi security forces captured a “high-ranking” and “dangerous” Islamic State (IS) militant in the western province of Anbar, an official statement announced on Monday.
“Following intensive surveillance and high-level joint intelligence efforts, the Anti-Terrorism Directorate’s Special Operations Unit carried out an operation in the Al Anbar province, which ended with the detention of a dangerous terrorist leader who holds the post of the so-called deputy governor of IS in Iraq,” Yehya Rasool, a spokesperson for the Iraqi military, said.
Elsewhere in Salahaddin, Rasool said, the Iraqi security forces arrested two IS militants who had taken part in a massive massacre in Tikrit during the 2014 crisis. Source
