The Iraqi security forces managed to capture five insurgents of the Islamic State (IS) in south of Mosul city on Sunday, Iraq’s Ministry of Interior said in a statement.
The militants were captured based on accurate intelligence information on the Mosul-Baghdad highway, the statement explained.
Some of the jihadists used to work in the insurgent group’s al-Hisbah, while the other three were militants of the so called Diwan al-Jund.
Iraq declared the “full victory” over the Islamic State (IS) in late 2017, but the jihadist group still poses a serious threat to the security forces and civilians in the liberated territories.
