Turkey captures sister of eliminated ISIS terrorist-in-chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi
Turkey captured the sister of eliminated ISIS terrorist-in-chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on Monday in the northern Syrian town of Azaz and is interrogating her husband and daughter-in-law who were also arrested, according to a senior Turkish official, who called the arrest an intelligence “gold mine.”
Female Muslim terrorist Rasmiya Awad, 65, was captured in a raid on a trailer container she was living in with her family near the town of Azaz in Aleppo province.
“We hope to gather a trove of intelligence from Baghdadi’s sister on the inner workings of ISIS,” the official said.
The sister-terrorist was with her husband-terrorist, daughter-in-law-terrorist, and five children-terrorists. The adults are being interrogated, the Turkish official said.
“This kind of thing is an intelligence gold mine. What she knows about ISIS can significantly expand our understanding of the group and help us catch more bad guys,” he added.
U.S. special operations forces conducted a raid on al-Baghdadi’s compound in Syria’s northwestern Idlib province, where the terrorist leader blew himself up with a suicide vest following a “brief firefight.”
