Trump Says 'Five Most Wanted Leaders Of ISIS Captured'

The ISIS Tactics That Have Left Iraqi Special Forces Weakened

According to Iraqi security advisor Hisham al-Hashimi, who spoke with Reuters, the captured leaders include Saddam Jamal, a Syrian who served as the Islamic State's governor of Syria's eastern Euphrates region, and three field commanders: Syrian Mohamed al-Qadeer, Omar al-Karbouli, and Essam al-Zawbai.

Riyadh al-Badran, an IHEC senior official, told the official Iraqiya TV channel that "he would not announce the results of the early ballot by the security forces, prisoners and the voting overseas".

"Five Most Wanted leaders of ISIS just captured!".

Among the IS leaders captured are four Iraqis and one Syrian, according to the New York Times, citing Iraqi sources.

The ISIS leaders who were apprehended do not include al-Baghdadi, a senior US official confirmed to CBS News' Margaret Brennan.

Officials then got Ithawi to persuade the other ISIS officials to move closer to a trap set up by Iraqi and American forces, where they were arrested.

After Iraqi forces retook the Iraqi metropolis of Mosul from ISIS final summer season, Syrian forces on the opposite aspect of the border claimed a sequence of swift victories, however the marketing campaign was stalled lately when Turkey launched a cross-border raid into Syria's north.

"The noose is tightening around him", Hashimi said, referring to Baghdadi.

"When a very tough, old school leader announced that I was his pick to be Chief of Station in a small but important frontier post, a few competitors complained to me directly 'why would they send you?' I owe that leader much for believing in me at a time when few women were given these opportunities", she said.

The leaders were taken in Iraq after months of strategic planning by the US, including the CIA, Turkey and Iraqi forces.
