Alwaght- Iraqi security forces have arrested one of the most dangerous female terrorists of the ISIS Takfiri group.
Iraqi media outlets reported on Sunday that the notorious detainee identified as Ahlam Mohsen Ali, is considered to be the leader of the female wing of ISIS.
Ahlam grew up in al-Houd village in Qayyara district, south of Mosul, before becoming a fierce terrorist who pushed her son to join brutal group. She also helped the group in the seizure of Mosul in mid-2014.
Ahlam, who pledged allegiance to ISIS on June 10, 2014, was arrested with her brother, a prominent ISIS member, in an operation by the security forces on a bridge that links the eastern and western halves of Mosul, during the liberation of the city on July 10.
A security force revealed information about Ahlam’s work as an ISIS sleeper cell and a leader for the female terrorists since the fall of Saddam’s regime in 2003.
Ahlam belongs to a poor family. Her father is a retired military officer and she has four brothers and sisters. “She escaped her husband because he used to work as a police officer before the ISIS occupation of Mosul, and he refused to pledge his allegiance to the group,” security sources said.
Last Monday Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi formally declared victory of the country’s forces over the ISIS Takfiri terrorist group one day after the country’s military and Popular Mobilization Forces took full control of the key city.
Mosul, Iraq's biggest metropolis after Baghdad, was occupied by ISIS in June 2014 and the Takfiri group's ringleader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared his so-called caliphate in the city's al-Nouri mosque. Iraqi forces have liberated the city with a population of more than 2.5 million people.
