Ten members of a key financial network for ISIS have been arrested in Iraq, the US-led coalition fighting the militants announced Thursday.

Iraqi commandos and Kurdish counter-terrorism forces arrested the members of the al-Rawi network in operations October 7-9 in Baghdad and Erbil in northern Iraq, the coalition said in a statement.

According to the coalition commander, US Army Lieutenant General Paul LaCamera, the arrests “deal a major blow to the desperate attempts by ISIS to re-emerge in Iraq.”

“Those who provide support to ISIS, in any way, will face the consequences,” he said.
