ISIS – Yemen leader captured by the Saudis with US help


Saudi Special Forces captured the leader of the Yemenite arm of the Islamic State Organization, according to the Riyadh-led coalition. 

The leader, Abu Osama al-Muhajer, as well as other members of the organization including its chief financial officer, were captured on June 3 in a raid on a house carried out by Saudi and Yemeni forces, the coalition said in a statement carried on Saudi state news agency SPA.

“We applaud worldwide efforts to continue the fight against ISIS branches and networks,” a U.S. military statement said.

The US said it assisted in the operation but did not provide any additional details.
