Iraqi officials announced on Wednesday that five top senior ISIS leaders were captured after an intricate cross-border operation.

According to The Daily Wire, the operation took three months to develop and execute. The first person captured was Alwaan al-Ithawi, one of the top aides to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghadadi.

Ithawi was tracked from Syria to the Turkish city of Sakarya; later, Turkish officials arrested him on February 15 and then extradited him to Iraq. After weeks of interrogation by Iraqi and American intelligence, Ithawi divulged the location of other ISIS leaders.

That led to an airstrike in mid-April that killed 39 suspected ISIS members. Ithawi then contacted fellow ISIS leaders, who had been hiding in Syria, goading them to cross the border.
