U.S. special forces carried out a large-scale raid in a terrorist hot spot in northwestern Syria overnight.
President Biden says the overnight raid by U.S. forces has killed a top Islamic State leader who had found safe haven in the Idlib region.
In a statement, the president said, “Thanks to the skill and bravery of our armed forces” the ISIS terrorist known as Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi was “taken off the battlefield.”
The counterterrorism raid reportedly involved U.S. forces flying in by helicopter to surround a house near the Turkish border. After a two-hour standoff, fighting broke out with rocket-propelled grenades and gunfire erupting from the house…
An eyewitness who went to the area after the battle saw a woman who had apparently detonated an explosive vest inside the building. Thirteen people, including women and children, reportedly died.
Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said the mission was a success with “no U.S. casualties.”
