Here’s what happens when US boots hit the ground. Watch as US and Peshmerga forces free 70 hostages in an epic ISIS raid.
US soldiers and Peshmerga forces have freed 70 hostages in the Kurdish region of North Iraq. The Pentagon says they were being held by Daesh in a village near the city of Hawija. A spokesman says at least 20 Daesh (ISIS) militants were killed in the raid. One US soldier also died. It was the first American combat death since the US’ withdrawal from Iraq in 2011.
