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

Al-Iraqiya cited Iraqi intelligence claiming they were captured after being lured from Syria into Iraq this spring.

Hashimi described Eithawi and Jamal as the two most senior ISIS figures ever to be captured alive.

The United States President Donald Trump on Thursday announced that five "most wanted" Daesh leaders have been captured in Iraq.

President Trump hailed the news on Twitter.

The group of senior ISIS leaders was in hiding in Syria and Turkey, and their arrest was part of a three-month sting operation.

Among the IS leaders captured are four Iraqis and one Syrian, according to the New York Times, citing Iraqi sources.

The security advisor to the Iraqi government went on say that Iraqi intelligence agents, in cooperation with U.S. forces, had managed to uncover bank accounts used by Daesh and decipher secret communication codes Eithawi used.

Final yr the Pentagon mentioned that there have been "some indicators" that al-Baghdadi was nonetheless alive a month after Russian Federation claimed to have killed him in a strike close to the Syrian metropolis of Raqqa.

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.

But the militants still pose a threat along the border with Syria and have continued to carry out ambushes, killings and bombings across Iraq.

Abadi declared final victory last December over the group, which overran a third of Iraq in 2014.

ISIS 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 previous year.
