Iraqi intelligence arrest five Islamic State terrorists in Diyala.


Iraqi military intelligence forces announced on Tuesday that five Islamic State terrorists were arrested in the eastern province of Diyala.

“Acting on intelligence information, troops of the Iraqi Military Intelligence Directorate caught five Islamic State terrorists in Mandali district in Diyala,” Alsumaria News quoted the directorate as saying in a press release.

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

Iraq declared the collapse of Islamic State’s territorial influence in November 2017 with the recapture of Rawa, a city on Anbar’s western borders with Syria, which was the group’s last bastion in Iraq.
