ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - At least seven Islamic State (ISIS) militants have been captured by the Peshmerga on the western Kirkuk front over the last two weeks, a Kurdish commander told Rudaw on Monday.

"Peshmerga forces managed to capture four ISIS militants named Ahmed Raad, Mohammed Khalaf, Saab Ali and Hussein Ali and now they are under police custody," Kamal Kirkuki, commander of the Peshmerga forces on the western Kirkuk front, told Rudaw.

He added that another group of three ISIS militants was also "captured by the Peshmerga forces in the village of Ufiya on February 13 and we handed them over to the (Kurdish) Asaish and counter-terror forces."

He revealed that "the captured militants had penetrated the area to spy," for the group.

A recently captured ISIS militant in Kirkuk was the source of an abundance of  intelligence information about the group’s current situation.

Saad Sulaiman, the captured ISIS militant, answering a question by Rudaw about the recent situation of the group in its territories in Iraq, said that "ISIS militants in Iraq are cut off from each other and besieged (by the Iraqi and Kurdish forces).

"They are suffering from a lack of weapons and ammunition," he claimed.
