Donald Trump lauds capture of five Islamic State commanders by Iraq

According to the Independent, the men were captured after they tricked by Iraqi intelligence services into crossing the Syrian border.

Iraqi security sources, who wished to remain anonymous due to restrictions on speaking to the media, said the terror group's leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is hiding somewhere at the Iraq-Syria border.

Hashimi said the operation was carried out in cooperation with United States forces, part of an American-led coalition fighting against ISIS militants on both sides of the Iraqi-Syrian border.

Iraqi forces in coordination with US -backed Syrian forces have captured 5 senior Islamic State group (ISIS) leaders, the USA -led coalition mentioned Thursday in a press release.

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

Iraqi agents who carried out the mission to capture the leaders were joined by members of an American-led coalition fighting against the Islamic State on both sides of the Iraqi-Syrian border.

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

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

We will remind that on may 6, military-air forces of Iraq attacked a position of the command of the ISIS terrorists in Syria.

It was unclear what standards, if any, Trump was utilizing to explain the ISIS operatives because the "5 most wished". An official said of al-Baghdadi: "His movements are discreet and he never travels in a convoy".

"Iraq will continue airstrikes in Syria and will do more to eliminate Daesh group".
