After a helicopter operation in Syria, the US captures an ISIS official.
The U.S. Military confirmed on Saturday that it launched a helicopter raid in eastern Syria that captured a top ISIS official and resulted in no injuries or deaths.
The United States military announced Saturday that it conducted a helicopter raid in eastern Syria that yielded the capture of a top ISIS official.
In a press release, CENTCOM announced that U.S. Central Command forces worked with the Syrian military to conduct a helicopter raid which led to the capture of an ISIS official identified as Batar.
The press release says that Batar was "involved in planning attacks on SDF-guarded detention centers and manufacturing improvised explosive devices."
No civilians, Syrian soldiers, or U.S. forces were killed or injured, according to the press release.
Shortly after the press release, CENTCOM issued another release stating that coalition forces had been attacked by rockets in northeast Syria on Saturday evening but said no injuries were reported.
News of the successful raid comes the day after CENTCOM announced that four U.S. service members were injured during a raid that left a senior ISIS leader dead.
CENTCOM confirmed the death of Hamza al-Homsi during the helicopter raid and said that all four U.S. service members, along with a working dog, were being treated for their injuries at a U.S. medical facility in Iraq.
"Hamza al-Homsi oversaw the group's deadly terrorist network in eastern Syria before he was killed in the raid," CENTCOM spokesman Col. Joe Buccino told Fox News Digital.
Sinam Mohamad, the representative of the Syrian Democratic Council to the U.S., told Fox News Digital that "the U.S. presence in northeast Syria is still essential to end ISIS."
