Al Qaeda’s Mosul Leaders Captured

It appears that the terrorists operating in and around Mosul are being rolled up with great success. Just twelve days ago, the head of al Qaeda’s operations in Mosul was captured. It appears that he may be talking, as his successor and another top leader, Taha Ibrahim Yasin Becher, also known as Abu Fatima, and Hamed Saeed Ismael Mustafa, also known as Abu Shahed, were captured together some time within the past few days.
These arrests occur within the context of successful military operations in the region:

On Thursday, Major General Rick Lynch said security forces had killed 226 militants and captured 757 in recent operations in Mosul and the surrounding area.

This is not a happy time to be a terrorist in Iraq.
