Alwaght- Iraq arrested Sami Jasim, deputy to former ISIS terrorist group, Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi said on Monday
Jasim was captured by intelligence services "outside the borders" of Iraq, Kadhemi said on Twitter.
"While our [Iraqi security forces] heroes focused on securing the elections, their [Iraqi national intelligence services] colleagues were conducting a complex external operation to capture Sami Jasim," the prime minister added, without providing further details of the operation.
Jasim is believed to have overseen the ISIS group's finances. He previously worked with al Qaeda's former Iraqi leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, until the latter was killed by US forces in 2006.
