Security forces arrest a terrorist.

Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) Two Islamic State members were arrested in an ambush by the Iraqi intelligence, after they infiltrated into the country coming from Syria, the Iraqi military said on Thursday.

In a statement, Brig.

Gen.

Yahia Rasool, spokesperson for the Security Media Center, said the military intelligence department “managed to arrest two militants while sneaking via the Iraqi-Syrian borders coming from Tal Hemeis in Syria.”

One of the militants, according to Rasool, “is wanted for judiciary over terrorism charges, along with his brother, father and three uncles.

The other militants used to work for Islamic State’s Islamic Police, before he fled toward Syria.

Earlier today, U.S.-led Coalition carried out an airstrike against the border region with Iraq in Syria’s southern Hasaka in an attempt to arrest Islamic State’s supreme leader, according to Syrian local sources.

Last week, Iraqi warplanes launched a new wave of air raids against outposts of the Islamic State group in Syria.

In April, Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi denied intentions to intervene within Syrian affairs, saying airstrikes against Islamic State will continue.

Iraq had previously announced launching airstrikes against IS locations in Syria.

This came after Abadi said security troops will follow IS militants in the whole region, not only in Iraq.

The Iraqi-Syrian borders are under the control of joint troops of military and border guards.
