ISIS wanted a fight…they got one.
The U.S. Army’s elite counter-terrorism unit, Delta Force, made a daring commando-style raid deep behind Islamic State group lines in Syria and successfully eliminated a top commander along with multiple Islamic State militants.
Aside from killing Abu Sayyaf, the Islami State group’s top money man who was in charge of the oil and gas operation that funded many of the group’s activities, Delta Force operators encountered a contingent of Islamic State group terrorists up close and in person, swiftly defeating them using hand-to-hand combat.
The Delta Force operators left at least a dozen dead radical Islamic terrorists in a combination of an intense firefight, culminating with a hand-to-hand combat situation that left no chance of victory for the terrorists.
All Delta Force personnel were reportedly able to insert behind enemy lines, complete their mission and get out without incident, indicating just how amazing this group truly is.
Fox News foreign correspondent John Cuddy reported that along with killing Sayyaf, the Delta Force team was able to capture his wife, Umm Sayyaf. She was widely believed to be in charge of a human trafficking ring that brought in another source of revenue for their terrorist organization (H/T BizPac Review).
The members of Delta Force are the U.S. Army’s most elite soldiers — often being recruited out of Army Special Forces and in some cases, the Army Rangers. The grueling process to become a Delta Force operator is only completed by a slim percentage of men, but the results are epic.
Let’s never take for granted what a huge impact and sacrifice our military makes for our nation.
