Wife Of ISIS Leader Captured By Turkey

Wife of the slain leader of the Islamic terrorist group has been arrested, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced Wednesday.

“We arrested Baghdadi’s wife,” the Turkish president said, without giving a name, date or exact location for the arrest.

Tayyip Erdogan simply added that it took place in Syria and that Turkey had also arrested a sister of the head of the Islamic State group and his brother-in-law, without again specifying whether it was a single and same operation.

In late October 2019 ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed by US commandos in a operation in Syria, a few kilometers from the Turkish border.

President Erdogan says that Ankara had played no role in the operation against al-Baghdadi and was only informed at the last minute.

The Americans neutralized Baghdadi … then they made a communication campaign,” complained the Turkish president. Before adding, about the arrest of the wife of the late leader of the group: “We, we did not make any history”. It’s done now
