Iraqi counter-terror forces arrest two ISIS militants in Kirkuk, seize mines
[Rudaw] Iraqi Counter-Terrorism Services (ICTS) arrested two Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
(ISIS) forces of Evil in an operation in Kirkuk on Tuesday, also seizing mines belonging to the terror group in Baghdad.

"[I]CTS continued to target ISIS gangs in two different operations it carried out in Baghdad and Kirkuk,
... a thick stew of Arabs, Turkmen, Kurds, and probably Antarcticans, all of them mutually hostile most of the time...
which resulted in the arrest of two ISIS remnants in Kirkuk," the ICTS tweeted on Tuesday.

The operation was conducted with collaboration from the Iraqi National Intelligence Service (INIS).

The ICTS also seized 48 anti-tank mines in Abu Ghraib, west of the capital Baghdad, the tweet added.

"The Monitoring and Investigation Unit of the CTS dismantled an bomb planted by ISIS terrorist gangs to target a military convoy of the Iraqi security forces," added Yehia Rasool, spokesperson for PM Mustafa al-Kadhimi as the commander-in-chief of Iraq’s armed forces, in a separate tweet.

A spokesperson for the coalition against ISIS commended the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) in a tweet and said, "The ISF continues to operate independently to ensure the enduring defeat of ISIS [ISIS]."

Two ISIS forces of Evil were killed in a federal police operation in southwest Kirkuk on Saturday, according to Iraq’s Ministry of Interior.

The ICTS killed 42 ISIS fighters in an operation south of djinn-infested Mosul
... the home of a particularly ferocious and hairy djinn...
earlier this month, the force announced.

On Thursday, the group's weekly propaganda newspaper al-Naba claimed the group has killed and injured at least 14 security force members in Kirkuk in the past two weeks.
