Turkey Captures Baghdadi’s Sister

Wednesday 6 November 2019

NEW DELHI (WION) — 8 days after the U.S. eliminated al-Baghdadi, Turkey has captured his sister.

Turkish forces in north-western Syria have captured the eldest sister of slain Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS) Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in a raid, according to a senior official.

The official said on Monday that the 65-year-old known as Rasmiya Awad was detained with her husband, daughter-in-law and five children in a trailer container she was living in near the town of Azaz in Aleppo province. The adults are being interrogated, he said, speaking to news agencies on condition of anonymity, calling the arrest an intelligence “gold mine”.
