BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:15 P.M.) – The Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) captured a key figure from the Islamic State (ISIS) during a recent security operation.

According to the official media wing of the YPG, their anti-terror unit (YAT) captured the Islamic State commander, Adil Musa Abduljezar (AKA “Abu Kerem”), while sweeping through an undisclosed area near the Turkish border.

Below is the full statement from the YPG’s media office:

“On 11 August 2018, one of the key ISIS figures named Abu Kerem, who’s real name is Adil Musa Abdouljezar (and recently had been using name Abu Basil al-Ghezawi) and who was in charge of intelligence activities in cities such an as al-Bab, Hama, Aleppo, Idlib, Raqqa, Mayadin, Tabqa and Daraa, has been captured in a special operation carried out by our forces.

Adil Musa Abdouljezar also provided a lot of important information about ISIS and how it has been strengthened and bolstered by the Turkish state.

Such lovely songs he must have sung out while interrogating him. He would put a nightingale to shame. He would have bragged how big he was when he was with Daesh during its peak but now he would have been put in a shitty dark room and living like a cockroach.
