President Donald Trump tweeted about the incident, saying: "Five Most Wanted leaders of ISIS just captured!"

The US-led coalition says Iraqi forces in coordination with US-backed Syrian forces have captured five senior ISIS group leaders. Trump wrote in a post on Twitter, providing no further details.

Abu Zeid al-Iraqi, one of the main associates of top IS leader Abu Bakr, had been living in Turkey with his Syrian wife under his brother's identity.

Ismail al-Eithawi, who also uses the alias Abu Zaid al-Iraqi, was captured in February in Turkey by Turkish authorities and handed over to Iraqi agents, Iraqi security advisor Hisham al-Hashimi told Reuters on Thursday. The self-styled caliph is still at large and believed to be hiding in the cross border area between Iraq and Syria.

The result of the three-month operation to capture the terrorist leaders, who had been hiding in Syria and Turkey, represents an important victory for the Iraqi and United States intelligence agencies.

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

The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said: "His movements are discreet and he never travels in a convoy".

Hashimi added that Iraqi forces used the Telegram messaging app on Eithawi's mobile phone, and managed to tempt a number of Daesh commanders in Syria to cross the border into Iraq, where they were arrested.

Abadi declared final victory last December over the group, which overran a third of Iraq in 2014. "It will neither allow Daesh militants to come back, nor a similar terrorist organization to appear, but Iraq doesn't mean to interfere in internal affairs of Syria", Abadi stated.

There are some 5,000 USA troops in Iraq training the country's military.
