Five top ISIS commanders captured in US-Iraq sting

BAGHDAD (NYTIMES) – Five senior Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) officials have been captured, including a top aide to the group’s leader, in a complex cross-border sting carried out by Iraqi and American intelligence, two Iraqi officials said on Wednesday (May 9).

Iraqi state TV described the five as “some of the most wanted” leaders of the group, said Reuters. They were shown in yellow prisoner uniforms.

The three-month operation, which tracked a group of senior ISIS leaders who had been hiding in Syria and Turkey, represents a significant intelligence victory for the US-led coalition fighting the extremist group and underscores the strengthening relationship between Washington and Baghdad.
