The widow of ISIL leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has revealed "a lot of information" about ISIS's work after her arrest last year, a Turkish official said.
The official said the widow said her name was Rania Mahmoud, but her real name was Fawzi Mohammed al-Qubaisi.
She was reportedly the first wife of Baghdadi, who was killed in an operation by US special forces in Syria last month.
The woman was arrested on June 2, 2018, in Hatay province, near the Syrian border, along with 10 other people, including his daughter, who was identified as Laila Jubeir.
The official said the relationship between the two women and Baghdadi was confirmed by the use of DNA samples (DNA) of Baghdadi provided by the Iraqi authorities.
“We discovered his real wife very quickly. It has acknowledged a lot of information about al-Baghdadi and how ISIS operates. ”
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan revealed for the first time on Wednesday the arrest of Baghdadi's widow.
"We captured his wife - it was announced for the first time - we didn't make a big fuss about it," Erdogan told a group of students in Ankara.
He confirmed that Turkey also arrested Baghdadi's sister and brother-in-law, which was announced by Turkish state media on Tuesday.
Erdogan criticized the United States for making a big fuss about Baghdadi's killing, saying: “They launched a very big PR operation.”
The leader of ISIS was killed in an operation by US special forces with the help of fighters from Kurdish factions in Idlib province (northwest Syria), near the border with Turkey.
