ISIS senior terrorist detained in Diyala


Iraqi security forces said Thursday they had detained an ISIS senior terrorist in Diyala.

Security sources said the ISIS leader was arrested in al-Saadiya region in Diyala.

The arrest was based on accurate intelligence information, police said. 

In late December 2017, Iraqi PM Haider Abadi declared the full liberation of Iraqi territories of ISIS terrorists.


But the terror group's sleeper cells still carry out sporadic attacks against civilians and police and military personnel.
