Iraqi intelligence arrest 2 ISIS terrorists in Mosul

Iraqi military intelligence forces announced on Saturday that two terrorists were arrested in the southern side of Mosul.

Acting on intelligence information, troops of the Iraqi Military Intelligence Directorate caught two ISIS terrorists in Al-Shuhada'a district in Mosul.

Arrest warrants were issued against them in accordance with Article 4 of terrorism law.

“The terrorists were referred to the competent authorities for interrogation,” the statement read.

ISIS has occupied vast areas from Iraq and Syria in 2014. Three years later, the terror group was expelled after massive military operations in partnership with the US-led coalition.

But remnants of the terror group are still planning a comeback. They are aided by local officials and pro-Iran militias.

Iraq declared a “final victory” over the ISIS in December 2017, three years after the militant group overran roughly a third of Iraq’s territory. Its fighters, however, continue to wage an insurgency in multiple provinces.
