ISIS tax collector arrested in Anbar

Iraqi security forces managed on Saturday to track down and arrest an ISIS militant in al-Karma district in Anbar.

A press statement by the Iraqi Military Intelligence Directorate said the ISIS terrorist was involved in collecting money from farmers for the terrorist group’s treasury.

Iraq declared victory over ISIS last December with the help of a US-led alliance, having retaken all the territory captured by the extremists in 2014 and 2015.

Sleeper cells are believed to be linked to the group to remain active in some parts of the country.
