US special forces captured ISIS chemical weapons chief in Iraq, official reveals

by  |  published on March 10, 2016

U.S. special forces captured the head of the Islamic State terror group’s unit trying to develop chemical weapons in a raid last month in northern Iraq, a defense official tells Fox News.

“We are using information we have learned for operations,” one official said. The captured operative was identified as Sleiman Daoud al-Afari.

He told U.S. interrogators ISIS had converted banned mustard gas into powdered form to launch in artillery shells, The New York Times adds.

Just yesterday, defense officials said U.S. warplanes in Syria targeted and likely killed an ISIS leader who served essentially as the terror group’s secretary of defense.

      I don’t know. Obama is full of surprises, not intelligent surprises though. Maybe, Sleiman Daoud al-Afair, will be sent to another country. I am not so happy to have any of the gitmo terrorists in the USA. Those people are crazy, and they might retaliate, by attacking us again. May G d protect us!!!!!!!

    It’s great, that our American forces have killed the head of the Isis terrorist forces!!!!!!!!!!
    Sleiman Daoud al-Afari was trying to develop chemical weapons. One less terrorist to be concerned about. But there are too many of them, to relax and take a break. They are too many, and I am sure he has already been replaced.
    President Obama, thanks to your “contain Isis forces”, instead of to “Kill Isis forces” our army is in more danger than ever, and with a very difficult task in their hands.
    Very proud of our American army, navy, elite forces, pilots!!!!
    G d bless them and protect them!!!!!!
