U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted about the anti-ISIS raid Thursday, saying those arrested were the "five most wanted" ISIS "leaders".

"#Iraq captures 5 key Daesh leaders during #OperationRoundup".

The arrested included four Iraqis and one Syrian, all of whom were in charge of governing ISIS' territory around Deir ez-Zor, Syria, and directing internal security and running the administrative body that oversees religious rulings.

Eithawi was first reported to have been captured in a town east of Istanbul in February, after being tracked entering Turkey from Syria under his brother's name.

A section of the mosque was set ablaze and smoke was billowing from the side of the building, Balram said. Police said the men entered the large mosque after midday prayers and stabbed three people.

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

Ithawi, described by the Iraqis as a top aide to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, had been living in Turkey, one official said.

Dillon's tweet said the capture was a coordinated operation between Iraqi and the United States backed Syrian Democratic Forces. 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 said last month he would "take all necessary measures" against militants based in Syria.

Despite being defeated, ISIS militants still pose a threat on the Syrian borders and continue to carry out bombings and killings across Iraq.

In December, Iraq declared victory over militants, having retaken all the territory captured by the extremists in 2014 and 2015.
