According to the Daily Mail, the terrorists were “lured” from Syria into Iraq using a popular mobile phone application.
“A security advisor to Iraq’s government said hours earlier that Iraqi agents were holding a top aide to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and used an app on his mobile phone to lure four commanders from the group into a trap,” writes the Daily Mail.
The developments mark another victory over the terror organization after months of prolonged military campaigns that dismantled the network throughout both Syria and Iraq.
