AMMAN, Jordan — A team of Army Delta Force commandos carried out a raid in Islamic State-held territories of eastern Syria, killing at least two militants with the extremist group, U.S. officials said Monday.
The officials, who were not authorized to speak publicly about the classified operation, said a special operations team carried out the raid Sunday to kill or capture suspected Islamic State leaders in the city of Deir Ezzor, about 90 miles southeast of the extremist group's de facto Syrian headquarters in Raqaa.
There were no prisoners taken, the officials said. They did not identify who was killed, or say which Islamic State leaders were targeted in the raid.https://www.military1.com/special-forces/article/1668513014-delta-force-carries-out-raid-against-isis-in-syria/
