US conducts counter-terrorism raid in Syria

Washington: US special forces have carried out counter-terrorism raid in north-western Syria, the Pentagon said. “US Special Operations forces under the control of US Central Command conducted a counterterrorism mission this evening in northwest Syria. The mission was successful. There were no US casualties. More information will be provided as it becomes available,” Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said on Wednesday. BBC quoted the White Helmets rescue service as saying that at least 13 people, including six children and four women, were killed in Atmeh. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the US operation was the largest here since the Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in a special forces raid in October 2019.
