Iraqi counter-terrorism forces arrested four foreign military advisors from the United States and Israel who were aiding the Islamic State, Iranian Tasnim News Agency reports.
Three of the arrested military advisors are dual citizens of the United States and Israel, while the fourth advisor is from a Persian Gulf country, Iraq’s Sarma News Agency said.
The foreign military advisors were captured in a headquarters, from where the Islamic State organized its military operations in Iraq’s Northern Province of Nineveh.
The arrests were made during the Operation, codenamed "The Sting of a Scorpion". A number of other Islamic State fighters have been killed during the assault. The detained foreign advisors have now been transferred to Baghdad.
Interesting to see if it pans out. In the comments section someone named Ian wrote: "I believe ISIS is wrongly spelled. It's ISUS, Israel Saudi US." I kind of like it. Iran is in there too, so maybe ISIS should be chaned to ISIUS, standing for Israel, Saudi Arabia, Iran, the US?
(Sorry for the mini rant. I am so sick of politicians at the moment)
