Saudi Special Forces capture emir of ISIS in Yemen
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] The Arab Coalition said that Saudi Special Forces have captured Abu Osama al-Muhajir, the emir of ISIS in Yemen
|To clarify: is this emir the biggest of big turbans in all Yemen, or is he just a local patrol leader?|
...an area of the Arabian Peninsula sometimes mistaken for a country. It is populated by more antagonistic tribes and factions than you can keep track of...
A statement on the Saudi Press Agency said al- Muhajir, as well as other members of the Death Eater group, were captured on June 3.
Weapons, ammunition, and telecommunication devices were also seized during the operation.
Col. Turki al-Maliki, the official front man of the Arab Coalition, said the joint operation took place on June 3 at 9:20 am local time.
"A house kept under close surveillance proved the presence of the terror group’s leader, and other elements, along with three women and three children," al-Maliki said.
"By fully identifying and understanding their daily routines in the area through monitoring and surveillance, the operation was successful in capturing the terrorists, and ensuring the safety of the women and kiddies inside the house," he added.
According to a statement, the entire operation lasted for ten minutes; including the raid, arrest of the terrorists, and the confiscation of possessions.
“The terrorist, who is known as Abu Osama al-Muhajer, was arrested along with some of his allies, including the group’s financial officer," Maliki added.
| That’s absolutely amazing! Surely neither the SEALS nor Mossad nor Spetznatz could accomplish such a thing so very quickly.|
