Mosul ( – The Iraqi Interior Ministry announced on Sunday that its forces arrested a member of the Islamic State militant group in Mosul city.

“Acting on intelligence reports, a force of the 15th police emergency regiment of the Nineveh Police Command arrested an Islamic State militant in al-Ma’moun district in the western side of Mosul,” the privately-owned Mawazin News website quoted the Interior Ministry spokesman, Maj. Gen. Saad Maan, as saying in a press statement.

The arrested militant was member of Islamic State’s so-called Jund (soldiers) Diwan, the spokesman said.

Former prime minister Haider al-Abadi announced in July 2017 liberation of the second largest Iraqi city of Mosul from IS militants, who had captured it in 2014. More than 25,000 militants were killed throughout the campaign, which started in October 2016.

The campaign was backed by paramilitary troops and a U.S.-led international coalition.

Iraq declared the collapse of Islamic State’s territorial influence in Iraq in November 2017 with the recapture of Rawa, a city on Anbar’s western borders with Syria, which was the group’s last bastion in Iraq.
