Iraqi security arrest 7 Islamic State members in Mosul

Nineveh ( Iraqi security forces arrested seven Islamic State members in the group’s formerly-declared capital, as authorities continue to hunt for the extremist group’s vestiges across its former havens.

The Interior Ministry said in a statement that the seven were apprehended in three neighborhoods of Mosul. It explained that some of those arrested worked for the group’s Hisbah (religious vigilantes) division, while the others worked as personnel officers.

Iraq declared victory over IS late 2017, but security continues to arrest and eliminate runaway members at the group’s former strongholds.
