SOUTHWEST ASIA – Dec. 19, 2019, Iraqi Counter-Terrorism Service, partnered with the Coalition, detained Nasir Qahtan Al-Ubayd, a Daesh affiliate responsible for terrorist activities in Anbar Province, Iraq.
An arrest warrant was issued after Al-Ubayd was identified as the leader of the Jaysh Al Kifah extremist group. Significant items recovered from the Al-Ubayd residence were: Military uniforms with body armor, weapons and magazines, multiple cell phones, and computer equipment. The detention is expected to degrade future attacks.
