US military raid in Syria kills ISIS leader

An overnight raid by United States special forces in northwestern Syria led to the death of the Islamic State terror group’s top leader Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi, President Joe Biden said Thursday. 

Al-Qurayshi died after detonating a suicide bomb that also killed members of his family as U.S. forces closed in, Biden said in an address from the White House.

The counterterrorism operation was carried out under his direction, he said, with all U.S. forces emerging safe from the raid.
