The US-led coalition says Iraqi forces in coordination with US-backed Syrian forces have captured five senior ISIS group leaders.

According to the New York Times, a cross-border sting using intelligence from both the United States and Iraq has resulted in the capture of the five senior figures.

The 2018 parliamentary election is the first since Iraq's historical victory over the militant Islamic State group in December previous year, as over 24 million Iraqis are eligible to vote in 4,148 polling center across Iraq for a new parliament, which they hope will bring change to the economic and security situations in the country.

Iraq captured five Islamic State commanders after its intelligence services lured them into crossing from neighboring Syria, Iraqi state TV reported Wednesday.

US President Donald Trump tweeted about the raid, saying those arrested were the "five most wanted" ISIS "leaders".

Syrian Mohamed al-Qadeer, and two Iraqis, Omar al-Karbouli and Essam al-Zawbai, were also captured.




Information about the other ISIS leaders came from Ithawi during his weeks of interrogation, which led to their capture and arrest, according to the officials.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has previously vowed to "take all necessary measures" against members based in Syria, with the Iraqi air force carrying out a number of airstrikes in areas believed to contain ISIS members in the country.

Final yr the Pentagon mentioned that there have been "some indicators" that al-Baghdadi was nonetheless alive a month after Russian Federation claimed to have killed him in a strike close to the Syrian metropolis of Raqqa.

On December 9, 2017, Abadi declared the end of military operations against Daesh in Iraq.

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