Iraqi security forces have arrested a group of three men alleged to be in charge of Islamic State (IS) propaganda activities in Baghdad.
Iraqi Defence Ministry released a statement on Sunday 21st June, revealing that security forces have arrested three IS members who were working as the militants’ media propagandists.
“Several computers and dozens of CDs, external hard discs and software programmes were seized during the operation,” reads the statement.
The statement has also revealed that the hardware contains footage and lectures about the ideology of IS.
“The group was responsible for recording IS activities in the area and sending the documents to Mosul and Raqqa.”
While the IS-held territories in Iraq and Syria are extremely restricted to outsiders, the terrorist group has been attempting to spread its ideology and recruit fresh jihadists throughout its media propaganda units.
