Federal Police chief Shaker Jawdat said multiple weapons, including explosive belts, were also seized after the arrest.


Iraqi troops recaptured Bu Sayf region from ISIS members in February, days after a second phase of operations launched to clear western Mosul from militants.

The Iraqi government declared Mosul Islamic State-free earlier this month, declaring the end of more than eight months of battles to retake Iraq’s second largest city and the group’s former capital.


Observers, however, fear that victory on the military level could not mean a total removal of the group’s threat, and think dormant cells could still destabilize the security situation with lone wolf attacks against civilians and security members. Many militants have also been found hiding among thousands of civilians fleeing the battlefield.

ISIS still controls a few pockets in Nineveh, Anbar, Salahuddin and Kirkuk, and the Iraqi government is planning to launch further offensives to clear those regions.

Earlier this month, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi congratulated Iraqi forces and citizens on the victory over IS militants who had held the second largest Iraqi city since 2014. More than 25,000 militants were killed throughout the campaign.

Violence in the country has surged further with the emergence of Islamic State Sunni extremist militants who proclaimed an “Islamic Caliphate” in Iraq and Syria in 2014.

Iraqi government forces, backed by a U.S.-led coalition, have been fighting ISIS out of Mosul since mid October. Late June, troops took over the Old City’s Nuri al-Kabir Mosque where ISIS first declared the establishment of its rule  in 2014 in a sermon delivered by the supreme leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The United States forces have ramped up their assaults against ISIS in the city which has resulted in close to complete annihilation of ISIS terrorists in the area.

Hell yeah! Keep up the good work!


God Bless.
