The source told Shafaq News Agency, "The Iraqi intelligence service carried out an operation in coordination with the Kurdistan’s Asayish in which it arrested the terrorist “Bashar Al-Idwani” who is responsible for snipers divisions in the southern sector."

He said "The intelligence service tracked Al-Idwani’s movement for three months before arresting him."
