BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – The Iraqi Special Forces conducted several successful raids in northwest Iraq over the past week, arresting many Islamic State (ISIS) members in the Nineveh and Erbil provinces.
Baked by the U.S. Coalition, the Iraqi Special Forces busted an Islamic State finance network in the provincial capital of the Erbil Governorate.
During this raid, the Iraqi Special Forces arrested at least ten members of the Islamic State affiliated Rawi financial network.
The task force conducted raids from Oct. 7-9 and arrested suspected members of the Rawi financial network, which operated as a “financial facilitation group” for the militants, the coalition said in a statement.
“This demonstrates that those who assist in, sponsor, or provide financial, material or technological support to ISIS will face severe consequences,” they added.
