Iraqi forces in coordination with USA -backed Syrian forces have captured five senior Islamic State group leaders, the US -led coalition said Thursday in a statement.
U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted about the raid, saying those arrested were the "five most wanted" IS "leaders".
Those arrested included Saddam al-Jammel, a Syrian who had been the head of the ISIS territory around Deir el-Zour, and Abu Abdel al-Haq, an Iraqi who had been the head of internal security for the group.

Hashimi said the operation was carried out in cooperation with USA forces, part of an American-led coalition fighting against Islamic State on both sides of the Iraqi-Syrian border.
Reports claim the Iraqi-American intelligence team used a messaging app on the phone of a ISIS member who had previously been captured to lure the men across the border where they were captured by Iraqi authorities. An official said of al-Baghdadi: "His movements are discreet and he never travels in a convoy".
Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said last month he would "take all necessary measures" against militants based in Syria.
After Iraqi forces retook the Iraqi city of Mosul from IS last summer, Syrian forces on the other side of the border claimed a series of swift victories, but the campaign was stalled recently when Turkey launched a cross-border raid into Syria's north.
