BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) arrested a senior Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) in the northeastern region of Syria this week.

According to the SDF’s statement, their forces captured the Islamic State official during a special operation in the southern countryside of the Al-Hasakah Governorate.

The statement pointed out that the Syrian Democratic Forces’ operation was backed by the U.S. Coalition’s warplanes.
