Five Top Islamic State Commanders Captured

In a tweet this afternoon, the U.S. leader said: "Five Most Wanted leaders of ISIS just captured!"

Two of Islamic State's most feared leaders have been captured in recent weeks. Trump wrote in a post on Twitter, providing no further details.

Iraq captured five Islamic State commanders after its intelligence services lured them into crossing from neighboring Syria, Iraqi state TV reported Wednesday.

The ISIS leaders who were apprehended do not include al-Baghdadi, a senior US official confirmed to CBS News' Margaret Brennan.

American and Iraqi officials believe him to be hiding out close to the Iraqi-Syrian shared border.

The result of the three-month operation to capture the terrorist leaders, who had been hiding in Syria and Turkey, represents an important victory for the Iraqi and U.S. intelligence agencies.

Iraqi intelligence operatives lured the men into Iraq after capturing a top aide to Al Baghdadi in February and using an app on his mobile phone.

His tweet came after Iraqi officials confirmed the results of the three-month cross-border operation.

"The noose is tightening around him", Hashimi said, referring to Baghdadi.

On April 30, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi pledged to continue airstrikes on Daesh positions and headquarters inside neighboring Syria but stressed that Baghdad would not infringe upon the sovereignty of the Damascus government. "It will neither allow Daesh militants to come back, nor a similar terrorist organization to appear, but Iraq doesn't mean to interfere in internal affairs of Syria", Abadi stated.

The militant group swept into Iraq in the summer of 2014, taking control of almost a third of the country.

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 past year.
