Anbar (IraqiNews.com) – An Islamic State militant was arrested Saturday during a military operation in the western Iraqi province of Anbar.
The Iraqi Military Intelligence Directorate said, in a press statement, that the IS terrorist was arrested in al-Karma district in Anbar.
“He was involved in collecting money from farmers for the Islamic State terrorist group,” the statement read.
Iraq declared victory over Islamic State in December with the help of a US-led alliance, having retaken all the territory captured by the extremists in 2014 and 2015.
Isolated cells believed to be linked to the Islamic State group remain active in some parts of the country.
