World’s most feared terrorist’s wife and daughter captured in Syria

The world’s most feared terrorist Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been dealt a devastating blow after he learned his wife and daughter had been seized leaving Syria. A woman believed to be Saja al-Dulaimi was arrested by the Lebanese Army trying to cross the border from Syria and is being interrogated in Beirut by security officials.

Her arrest could be used by Lebanese military intelligence as a bargaining chip to swap for the many hostages being held by IS fighters.

A Lebanese security source said the arrest was “a powerful card to apply pressure” in negotiations to secure the release of 27 Lebanese soldiers captured by militants.

The woman – billed as “one” of Baghdadi’s three wives – was among 150 women prisoners released from a Syrian government prison in March this year but she remained in the country.

She and her child were captured by the Lebanese army as they crossed from Syria nine days ago- just as her husband’s forces were suffering huge military losses.
