Ismail al-Eithawi, who also uses the alias Abu Zaid al-Iraqi, was nabbed in February in Turkey by Turkish authorities and handed over to Iraqi agents, Iraqi security advisor Hisham al-Hashimi told Reuters.

Hashimi described Eithawi as a direct aide to Baghdadi, noting that he was responsible for money transfers to Daesh bank accounts in various countries.

According to the Independent, the men were captured after they tricked by Iraqi intelligence services into crossing the Syrian border.

Not long after, Trump announced the big news that the war against ISIS continues to pound the terrorist group into the dustbin of history.

The President of the United States Donald trump confirmed that the prisoner was captured five "most wanted" leaders of the terrorist organization Islamic state.

Losers included, Lupin, Dr Reddy, TCS, Coal India , Cipla, SunPharma, Tech Mahindra and HDFC Bank . The Indian currency had closed at a 15-month low of 67.13 against the USA dollar on Monday.

Officials then got Ithawi to persuade the other ISIS officials to move closer to a trap set up by Iraqi and American forces, where they were arrested. An official said of al-Baghdadi: "His movements are discreet and he never travels in a convoy".

Iraqi agents who carried out the mission to capture the leaders were joined by members of an American-led coalition fighting against the Islamic State on both sides of the Iraqi-Syrian border.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi has claimed that the deployment and installation of Iraqi troops in disputed territories between Iraq and the Kurdistan Region is conclusive.

The Iraqi air force has carried out several air strikes since past year against ISIS positions in Syrian territory.

On December 9, 2017, Abadi declared the end of military operations against Daesh in Iraq.
