ISIS terrorist arrested in Mosul

Iraqi Interior Ministry Spokesperson Saad Maan said on Monday that an ISIS terrorist was arrested in the Iraqi city of Mosul.

In a statement, of which, the Baghdad Post, received a copy, he added that the militant was arrested in the district of Ma'moun during an operation by Nineveh Police Command based on intelligence information.

He was a member of the group's so-called Jund Diwan, Maan added.

The ISIS was declared fully defeated in Iraq in late 2017, while the group's sleeper cells have so far continued to pose a threat to the security forces and civilians in the country.
