U.S military reports indicate that the country’s Special Forces deployed in eastern Syria the past weekend engaged Daesh in an operation killing at least 25 militants.
According to the U.S Department, the Sunday raid apparently hit a small town along the Euphrates River that targeted militant leaders.
The operation was initially reported by Deir Ezzor 24, which monitors militant activity in that area.
The air strikes targeting Daesh extremist leaders lasted for about 90 minutes and involved the Special Forces troops who had arrived in the country on helicopters.
According to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human rights reported Monday that the US raid killed at least 25 Daesh operatives. The group also reported two terrorist leaders — Abu Sufiyan al-Omrani and Abu Huzaifa al-Orduni. They were killed in coalition airstrikes this weekend in Al-Raqqah, about 100 miles northwest of Deir Ezzor.
CENTCOM reported that there were a total of 34 strikes carried out in Syria and Iraq on Sunday alone.
