Iraqi forces has claimed that the cousin of Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, the infamous leader of ISIS, has been captured by Iraqi forces.
The cousin of Baghdadi, is also a high-ranking member of ISIS, and would prove to be a significant blow to the terrorist organization.
He was captured in Mosul where Iraqi forces are currently engaging ISIS in the western portions of the city after liberating the east some months ago.

The most current intelligence suggests that Baghdadi is stranded in Nineveh province, where Mosul is located, without any means of escape.
This would prove to be a major blow to the leadership of the terrorist group in the last two days as another top commander was captured on Saturday, with another 7 killed by US-led coalition airstrikes on Friday.
