The Pentagon transferred the head of the Islamic State terror group’s chemical weapons development unit to the Iraqi government Thursday shortly after the U.S. captured him in a raid, Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook announced.

Cook stressed the U.S. would keep ISIS detainees only for the “short term,” handled on a “case by case” basis.
