Washington, D.C. — President Donald Trump on Thursday announced the capture of the top five most wanted leaders of ISIS.
“Five Most Wanted leaders of ISIS just captured!” the president announced via Twitter.
The five men captured were reportedly done so after being lured by Iraqi intelligence services into crossing the border from Syria.
A statement from the US-led coalition against Isis called the arrests a “significant blow to Daesh,” using the Arabic acronym for Isis.
The event marks the third victory within a week for the Trump administration, following the negotiated release of three American citizens who had been held prisoner by the North Korean regime and the much-celebrated withdrawal from a controversial Obama-era nuclear deal with the Iranian government.
