Senior ISIS figure captured by US special forces in Iraq
In what appears to signal the start of a new stage of the US war against ISIS, American special forces troops raided an ISIS complex in Iraq early Wednesday morning and captured one of the terrorist organization's senior leaders. The identity of the captive has yet to be released. The raid by about 200 troops, including members of the elite Delta Force, was the first by American ground forces in Iraq since 2011. It followed intensive gathering of intelligence from various sources in the country including Kurdish forces.
