See How US Military kills ISIS fighters in newly released video

The US military has released a video showing American special operators and Afghan Special Secuirty Forces going on a nighttime raid hunting ISIS-Khorasan fighters in Afghanistan. The pentagon has confirmed that the US military has a recent successful history of operations targeting Isis-Khorasan in March.

“This tactical defeat of ISIS-K fighters in Jowzjan is the most recent in a series of Afghan and US (special operations forces) counterterrorism successes targeting ISIS-K in northern Afghanistan this year,” a statement from the Department of Defense said.

The focus on these raid is to hinder Isis from recruiting more foreign forces. The pentagon had released a statement saying that four of the ISIS-K fighters were killed on March 22 by a successful airstrike.

ISIS-K’s head facilitator of foreign fighters was apparently captured by Afghan forces on January 28th. They are responsible for a string of attacks on civilians using suicide bombings.
