TEHRAN (Iran News) – Iraqi security forces arrested two senior members of the ISIS terror group in the capital Baghdad, according to Iraq’s Interior Ministry.
A ministry statement on Sunday said one of the militants was responsible for the terror group’s intelligence unit in the western city of Fallujah, Anadolu Agency reported.
It added that the two terrorists had confessed to taking part in carrying out attacks against security forces and civilians.
In 2017, Iraq declared victory over ISIS by reclaiming all of its territories – about a third of the country’s area – invaded by the terrorist group in 2014. However, the terrorist group still maintains sleeper cells in large areas of Iraq and periodically launches attacks.
The Iraqi army and popular forces continue to carry out operations against the terrorist group.
