BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – The Iraqi military arrested seven Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists inside of Mosul city, today, Baghdad Today reported.
“Karama security forces, acting upon intelligence reports, arrested seven wanted terrorists of Islamic State in Aden district in Mosul’s eastern side,” Major General Sa’ad Ma’an said, as quoted by Baghdad Today.
“One of them admitted assassinating security forces and photographing criminal acts carried out by the terrorist group with the aim of terrifying citizens,” he added.
The Iraqi military has recently intensified their security operations inside of Mosul in response to the Islamic State’s constant attacks against their personnel and civilians in the area.
With Mosul under the full control of the Iraqi government, the Islamic State has used their sleeper cells inside the city to constantly target the people.
