Trump heralds capture of five Islamic State commanders

Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al Abadi greets his supporters during an election campaign rally in Najaf Iraq

The second leader, Ismail al-Eithawi, who had been captured previously, was said to have been told to use his phone to summon the others.

This will be the first general election since Iraq's historical victory over the militant group Islamic State (IS) in December past year.

Hashimi described Eithawi and Jamal as the two most senior Islamic State figures ever to be captured alive. Jamal was shown on Iraqi state television on Wednesday night, wearing a yellow prison uniform.

Iraqi security forces pull down a flag belonging to Sunni militant group ISIS.

The joint Iraqi-American intelligence team then persuaded Ithawi to contact several of his ISIS colleagues who had been hiding in Syria and lure them across the border, the officials said.

Tick-Bite Prevention, Education with Poppy Seeds — CDC
On Friday, the agency reminded its followers just how small those the pests can be, tweeting two photos of a poppy seed muffin . Now, the most contentious matter doing the rounds on the social media platform revolves around a humble poppy seed muffin.

Late last month, Daesh spokesman Abu Hassan al-Muhajir stated that members of the terror outfit would attack polling stations, voters and candidates during national Iraqi elections, which are set to take place on Saturday.

Abadi declared final victory last December over the ultra-hardline group, which overran a third of Iraq in 2014.

Islamic State, however, continues to carry out bombings, assassinations and ambushes, and remains active in neighbouring Syria where it has also lost most of its territory.

Islamic State militants last month restated their loyalty to Baghdadi, in what is believed to be their first public pledge of allegiance to him since his self-proclaimed caliphate in Syria and Iraq collapsed previous year.
