The Pentagon said on Thursday it captured the Daesh's chemical weapons chief in Iraq during an operation in February.
The capture of Sulayman Dawud al-Bakkar, also known as Abu Dawud, "removed a key ISIL leader from the battlefield," the Pentagon said in a statement, referring to the militant group by a different acronym. He was transferred to Iraqi government custody earlier on Thursday, it said.
The Pentagon said it learned details about Daesh's chemical weapon facilities and production, as well as the people involved, from Dawud. The information resulted in several airstrikes by a U.S.-led coalition against Daesh, it added.
