Video Shows Raid on ISIS Compound That Killed American Commando

 

Saturday, 24 Oct 2015 11:22 PM

 NBC News released a video Saturday night that purports to show the raid on an ISIS compound in northern Iraq that freed dozens of prisoners who were facing imminent slaughter but also resulted in the death of a U.S. special forces commando. 

The video, which apparently was shot from a helmet camera carried by a Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, shows hostages being freed as rapid weapons fire can be heard in the background.

The video, exclusively obtained by NBC News from Jordan-based news outlet Arab24, would be the first glimpse at a  raid in which U.S. and Kurdish commandos executed a joint pre-dawn rescue mission after a tip that hostages there were about to be slaughtered. Oklahoma native Delta Force commando Master Sgt. Joshua Wheeler was killed in the ensuing firefight, marking the first time an American has died in combat operations against ISIS.
