The Central Investigative Court interrogated Hussein, who "admitted to 'a lot of divisions and break-ups inside the organization.'" The others are "Saddam Jamal, a Syrian and ISIS governor of the eastern Euphrates region, and field commanders Syrian Mohamed al-Qadeer, Iraqi Omar al-Karbouli, and Iraqi Essam al-Zawbai".

The American leader Donald trump said that he had been caught five most wanted leaders of terrorist group Islamic state. "The arrest is a significant blow to Daesh.", he said, adding: "CJTF-OIR is committed to lasting defeat of Daesh and setting conditions for stabilization". The shooters in that incident pledged their allegiance to the ISIS leader. The Iraqi air force has carried out several airstrikes since a year ago against ISIS positions in Syrian territory. But the militants still pose a threat along the border with Syria and have continued to carry out ambushes, killings and bombings across Iraq. Trump tweeted, referring to a coordinated operation to arrest the men by Iraqi and United States intelligence agencies, Efe reported.

Al-Eithawi, a top aide to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was captured in February by Turkish authorities and handed over to Iraqi agents, a security advisor to the Iraqi government said on Thursday. It was unclear what criteria, if any, Trump was using to describe the IS operatives as the "five most wanted". The official wasn't authorized to discuss the targets publicly and requested anonymity.

None of the statements released Thursday from the president or the coalition named the IS fighters arrested. At the height of the group's power their self-proclaimed caliphate stretched from the edges of Aleppo in Syria to just north of the Iraqi capital Baghdad.
