Trump announces capture of five ISIS leaders

Iraqi elections

"Our forces are in complete control of the Iraqi-Syrian border and I therefore announce the end of the war against Daesh", he told a conference in Baghdad then.

The ISIS leaders who were apprehended do not include al-Baghdadi, a senior US official confirmed to CBS News' Margaret Brennan.

In a statement Thursday, May 10, 2018, coalition spokesman Army Col. Ryan Dillon said that USA -backed Syrian forces have captured five senior Islamic State group leaders.

"Iraq will continue airstrikes in Syria and will do more to eliminate Daesh group".

The polls are conducted as areas of Iraq still lie in ruins as a result of a three-year military campaign supported by the US against militants.

Five senior Islamic State (ISIS) leaders have been captured in a sting operation orchestrated by American and Iraqi intelligence.

West Brom relegated after Southampton win at Swansea
A Southampton source told Sportsmail: "As far as we are concerned, there is no proof that there is a problem with the hotel". Any set of results - again, provided they don't somehow finish with a goal differential worse than Swansea's .

It described the five as "some of the most wanted" leaders of ISIS.

They were arrested by Iraqi authorities after they crossed the border.

One of the men was a top aide to ISIS' leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, according to two Iraqi officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity, the Straits Times reported.

None of the statements released Thursday from the president or the coalition named the ISIS fighters arrested. An official said of al-Baghdadi: "His movements are discreet and he never travels in a convoy".

Abadi declared final victory last December over the ultra-hardline group, which overran a third of Iraq in 2014. At the height of the group's power their self-proclaimed caliphate stretched from the edges of Aleppo in Syria to just north of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

The ISIS leaders are said to have featured in a series of sick execution videos, filmed when the extremist group controlled large swathes of Iraq.
