IS Senior Member Captured in Baghdad

Iraqi security forces on Sunday managed to capture a senior member of the Islamic State (IS) in the capital Baghdad.

Major General Yehia Rasool, a spokesperson for the commander-in-chief of the armed forces, said in a statement that the senior militant was captured in the area of Karkh, in Baghdad.

The arrest was made during an operation by the counter-terrorism forces based on intelligence information on the jihadist, who used to work in the group’s so-called Hisbah in Anbar province in 2014. Source
