Trump hails capture of 5 most-wanted IS leaders

President Donald Trump tweeted Thursday that five of the "most wanted" ISIS leaders have "just" been captured.

It described the five as "some of the most wanted" leaders of ISIS.

According to the Daily Mail, the terrorists were "lured" from Syria into Iraq using a popular mobile phone application.

According to two Iraqi sources aware of the capture and Iraqi state television, the five ISIS leaders in question were captured in early spring, and based on the names in those reports ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was not among them.

The US-led coalition supported Iraqi ground forces and Syrian fighters known as the Syrian Democratic Forces in the more than three- year war against ISIS.

Following Ithawi's capture, Iraqi and American intelligence agents were able to uncover bank accounts used by the group and secret communication codes he used, Hashimi said.

The West Virginia primary is on May 8. "We've actually been able to work with him on his regulatory agenda", said Atty Gen. Senate. " I've never used a race word ". "They are calling me a bigot, a moron, a despicable character, and mentally ill".

"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 arrested included four Iraqis and one Syrian, all of whom were in charge of governing ISIS' territory around Deir ez-Zor, Syria, and directing internal security and running the administrative body that oversees religious rulings.

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

Abadi declared final victory last December over the group, which overran a third of Iraq in 2014.

But the militants still pose a threat along the border with Syria and have continued to carry out ambushes, killings and bombings across Iraq.
