Iraqi forces have arrested ISIS-linked terrorist, who was involved in committing attacks against security men in Diyala province, a security source told The Baghdad Post on Wednesday.

The source added that the arrestee is accused of committing terrorist attacks against civilians in Diyala.


The ISIS group appeared on the international scene in 2014 when it seized large swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria, declaring the establishment of an Islamic “caliphate” from Mosul city.
Later on, the group has become notorious for its brutality, including mass killings, abductions and beheadings, prompting the U.S. to lead an international coalition to destroy it.

In January 2015, Iraqi forces announced liberation of Diyala province from ISIS militants who proclaimed an “Islamic Caliphate” in Iraq and Syria in 2014.
