ISIS senior leader killed in daring raid which left four US servicemen wounded

Four US service members and one dog were wounded last night during a raid which killed a senior ISIS senior leader. The helicopter raid in northeastern Syria, carried out by the US and the Syrian Democratic Forces, killed the targeted ISIS senior leader, Hamza al-Homsi.

The service members and working dog are receiving treatment in Iraq. The news comes hot on the heels of US special forces killing an ISIS leader and 10 other terrorists in northern Somalia.

The operation targeted Bilal al-Sudani, a key financial facilitator for the global terrorist organisation, in a remote mountainous area with caves.

The US had been trying to wipe out the brute for years, due to him playing a key role in helping to fund ISIS operations in Africa as well as the ISIS-K terrorist branch operating in Afghanistan.
