More USA military action against ISIS in Syria

Special Forces have attacked an ISIS leadership compound in northwest Syria, killing a number of ISIS members and their family members.

According to the White House,

United States military forces successfully removed a major terrorist threat to the world: the global leader of ISIS, known as Hajji Abdullah.

He took over as the leader of ISIS in 2019 after the United States counterterrorism operation killed al-Baghdadi. . .

Hajji Abdullah oversaw the spread of ISIS-affiliated terrorist groups around the world after savaging communities and murdering innocents.

He was responsible for the recent brutal attack on a prison in northeast Syria holding ISIS fighters, which was swiftly addressed by our brave partners in the Syrian Democratic Forces.

He was the driving force behind the genocide of the Yazidi people in northwestern Iraq in 2014. . .

Our team is still compiling their report, but we do know that as our troops approached to capture the terrorist, in a final act of desperate cowardice, he — with no regard to the lives of his own family or others in the building, he chose to blow himself up — not just with a vest, but to blow up that third floor rather than face justice for the crimes he has committed, taking several members of his family with him just as his predecessor did.

The Defense Department has said that at least nine people were killed, and there were perhaps as many as 13.  There were no U.S. casualties.
