Diyala police arrest top ISIS leader in Baqubah

A joint security force from Diyala police arrested on Friday a top ISIS leader northeast of Baquba.

A military source said that the joint security force arrested the ISIS leader according to intelligence information.

Although Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced full liberation of Iraqi lands and the end of war against ISIS in December 2017, Iraqi cities are witnessing acts of violence as terrorist group's sleeper cells continue to launch attacks targeting civilians and security forces.
