Thursday morning, an ISIS bomb-maker who was one of the group’s senior leaders in Syria was captured during a U.S.-led coalition ground raid, according to the Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve (CJTF-OIR).

The Daily Wire reports:

“Coalition forces detained a senior Daesh leader during an operation in Syria June 16,” a CJTF-OIR press release stated. “The detained individual was assessed to be an experienced bomb maker and facilitator who became one of the group’s top leaders in Syria.”

The press release also stated that no civilians were harmed during the raid, and all of the coalition’s equipment made it through without any damage.

“The mission was meticulously planned to minimize the risk of collateral damage, particularly any potential harm to civilians. There were no civilians harmed during the operation nor any damage to Coalition aircraft or assets,” CJTF-OIR said.

In February, the White House announced that another top ISIS leader had been killed in Syria.

“Last night at my direction, U.S. military forces in the northwest Syria successfully undertook a counterterrorism operation to protect the American people and our Allies, and make the world a safer place,” President Joe Biden said in the statement.

“Thanks to the skill and bravery of our Armed Forces, we have taken off the battlefield Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi—the leader of ISIS. All Americans have returned safely from the operation. I will deliver remarks to the American people later this morning. May God protect our troops,” Biden added.

  1. To bad our president does not support the military…the democrats have taken funds away from them and made the mission of defending our nation harder…give our forces what they need!!!!!

    1. Maybe because Obama said the US under him had destroyed ISIS, but apparently they didn’t. So they still have to fight this war.

    2. Because of Muslims! BB Netanyahu once said “if the Israellis lay down their guns, there will be no more Israel, if the Muslims lay down their guns there will be no more wars”!!

    3. We can either be THERE at WAR, or HERE at war. Take your pick. You`re part of the problem, with stupidity like that.

    4. whether you believe it or not is irrelevant. there are still terrorist groups planning and sitting in waiting to attack the US and its allies. terrorist are very patient.

  2. “…we have taken off the battlefield Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi—” Yeah, I’m sure he spit that name out clearly and concisely. More likely it took him a couple of minutes to read it off the monitor! And we know they’re not doing these raids “at your direction.” The people behind the scenes tell you, you attempt to read it (or try to), end of story.

  3. Thank God for our patriotic, brave military who STILL LOVE AND SERVE AMERICA despite little to no support from the illegal administration ensconced in our White House. From the top down, not one of those in their illegally held positions, fully support our military. They are attempting to “teach” the military CRT so anyone in a uniform doesn’t have ANY SUPPORT except the American people. We love and support anyone in uniform, military, police, fire fighters,etc, BUT DO NOT SUPPORT THE LIMP WRISTED GEN. MILLEY NOR AUSTIN, SEC. OF DEFENSE. THEY ARE THE WORST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Joke O’Biden states “this ISIS leader was taken out under my direction” You think so? The clown can barely read from a teleprompter.

  5. Something smells orchestrated to me? {*j*} Abu Abrahim al Hashamia al Qurayshi was more apt to have turned Christian. He was no longer worth anything to the Taliban. I dont need Bidens ice cream brain freeze remarks. CLOSE OUR BORDERS, DRILL SOME OIL HERE. I WOULD PROTECT MY TAX PAYERS IF I WERE YOU. Personally, I am ready for a 21- century rendition of what the Italians did to Mussolini. Did you women figure out what happened to the shortage of tampons diapers and tampax? You`re wearing them on your face. There was more money in it. This is only the beginning.

  6. Ram one of his incendiary devices up his arse, take cover and detonate: send him off to meet Allah and the 65 virgin crocodiles.
