US forces capture 3 key Daesh militants in Syria raid

BEIRUT, 24 January 2023, (TON): US military’s Central Command said “US forces have captured three Daesh group members during a helicopter and ground raid in eastern Syria.”

The raid happened on Saturday, according to Col. Joe Buccino, a Central Command spokesperson, adding that one civilian received “minor injuries” during the attack and was treated at a nearby medical facility before being released back to his family.

A Central Command statement described the militants as facilitators, a logistician, and an “associate” of the jihadist group.

Few other details of the raid were disclosed. Central Command alluded to the presence of “partner forces” language which in the past has been used to refer to the Syrian Democratic Forces, the Syrian Kurdish armed group that helped the US and its allies defeat the Daesh group, which sought to establish as Islamic caliphate.
