Reports say Lebanese authorities have detained one of the wives of the head of the Takfiri ISIL terrorist group on Lebanon’s border with Syria.
Citing Lebanese security sources, local daily As-Safir and Reuters reported Tuesday that Lebanese Army Intelligence made the arrest in cooperation with Western intelligence agencies.
The report added that Ibrahim al-Samarrai (aka Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi)’s wife has been arrested “at one of the border crossings while traveling with a fake passport with her son.”
It said that she is being interrogated at the Lebanese Defense Ministry, without identifying the arrestees by name.
As-Safir described the arrest of the “big fish” a major blow to the Takfiri ISIL group, which is operating in Syria and Iraq.
The Lebanese army has not commented on the arrest.
The ISIL terrorists currently control swaths of territory across Iraq and neighboring Syria, where they have been committing heinous crimes.
