Trump’s tweet that tweaks terrorism!!

US President Donald Trump seems to make up his mind related to the expulsion of terrorism. He said on Thursday that five “most wanted” leaders of the Islamic State militant group had been captured, an apparent reference to the capture of five commanders of the militant group from Iraq.

“Five Most Wanted leaders of ISIS just captured!” US President Trump wrote on Twitter, providing no further details.

Iraq had described the capture of the ISIS commanders as “some of the most wanted” leaders of the group. However, the list did not include ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The US-led coalition said in a statement “Iraqi forces that are working with US-backed Syrian rebels had captured five senior ISIS leaders”.

On the other side, in a statement Thursday coalition spokesman Army Col. Ryan Dillon called the arrest a “significant blow to Daesh”( Arabic acronym for the extremist group).

Earlier on Thursday, a renowned newspaper reported that the five suspects including a helper to Baghdadi had been captured after the three-month joint operation carried out by Iraqi and US intelligence agencies.

According to reports, the joint operation tracked senior ISIS leaders who had been hiding there in Syria and Turkey.
