US-SDF Raid Captures Key ISIS Recruiter in Syria

Date:

The United States Central Command (CENTCOM) announced that a January 18 helicopter raid, backed by Kurdish SDF forces, resulted in the capture of an “ISIS Syrian provincial media and security operative” in eastern Syria. According to a CENTCOM statement, the unnamed militant “was involved in the planning and facilitation of ISIS operations in and outside of the region as well as global recruiting efforts.”

CENTCOM spokesman Colonel Joe Buccino squid that “The capture of this ISIS operative will disrupt the terrorist organization’s ability to further plot and carry out global attacks threatening U.S. citizens, our partners and innocent civilians,” adding that “ISIS continues to represent a threat to the U.S. and partners in the region. CENTCOM maintains a sufficient and sustainable presence in the region and will continue to counter threats against regional security.”
