US Special Forces got into a gun fight with a major ISIS commander named Abu Sayyaf, shooting him dead. The soldiers then saw one of his sex slaves — a Yezidi woman — and liberated her.
According to the story:
US special forces have killed a senior Isis leader named as Abu Sayyaf in an operation aiming to capture him and his wife in Syria.
Ash Carter, the Secretary for Defence, said commanders entered his home in al-Amr on Friday night on the previously secret mission.
Sayyaf and his wife, Umm Sayyaf, were believed to be involved in Isis’ military operations as well as its control of oil fields, gas supplies and finance.
Mr Carter said the man was shot dead in a gun battle after “engaging” American troops, who captured his wife.
A young Yazidi woman, believed to be one of many kept as sex slaves by Isis militants, was freed during the operation.
The Pentagon claimed that Mr Sayyaf’s wife was a suspected member of the so-called Islamic State and “played an important role” in its activities.
Hailing the operation as a triumph, Mr Carter said no US troops were killed or injured.
