Iraq used Baghdadi aide’s phone to nab Daesh cmdrs
The Iraqi Armed Forces have captured one of ISIL’s top commanders after he and his personnel attempted to cross the border from Iraq to Syria.
A high-ranking Iraqi security official says authorities are holding a top aide to the purported leader of the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group, Ibrahim al-Samarrai aka Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and have used a messaging application on his mobile phone to nab four commanders of the militant outfit.
According to Iraqi sources, the Iraqi intelligence forces seized the ISIL commander, Saddam Al-Jamal, and four other commanders after they set a trap near the border-crossing the terrorist group uses to cross back-and-forth from Syria to Iraq.
Jamal was the governor of the Islamic State’s Euphrates province and considered one of Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi’s most trusted commanders.
Also arrested alongside Jamal was the high ranking Islamic State commander Abu Saif Al-Shaiti – he was also believed to be a trusted advisor to Baghdadi.
