American killed in Iraq hostage rescue, Pentagon says

Source: CNN About 70 hostages facing "imminent mass execution" were rescued and an American service member was killed in an operation against an ISIS-controlled prison in northern Iraq, the Pentagon said Thursday. The commando became the first American combat death in Iraq since November 2011. The hostages -- including more than 20 members of the Iraqi Security Forces, local residents and several ISIS fighters accused of spying -- were liberated in the helicopter assault, which involved U.S. special operations troops as well as Kurdish and Iraqi forces, U.S. officials said. "There was not a lot of time," one U.S. official told CNN on condition of anonymity. "The threat of execution was imminent." Mass graves dug inside the compound were spotted during surveillance, a U.S. official with direct knowledge of details of the raid told CNN. After the rescue, hostages said they had been told they would be executed after morning prayers. The firefight represents the first time U.S. forces stepped into combat against ISIS in Iraq, one U.S. official said. A U.S. Special Forces commander on the ground made the decision to directly engage ISIS fighters during the overnight mission, according to the official with knowledge of the raid. Thirty troops from Delta Force on an "advise and assist role" participated in the raid when Kurdish "Cobra" commandos were overwhelmed after entering the walled compound on their own, the official said. The American who was killed was shot inside the compound near Hawija in northern Kirkuk province, badly injured and flown to Irbil, where he died, according to the official. Four Peshmerga soldiers were wounded, officials said. There were no Kurds among the hostages, the Kurdistan regional government said. The United States had said earlier about 70 Kurdish hostages were rescued. Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook said authorities were still assessing who was rescued. "We did not have a crystal clear idea of who exactly would be at this co

White House says attempt to rescue hostage in Yemen shows American resolve

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The White House said on Monday (December 08) that the attempted rescue of an American hostage in Yemen should signal extremist groups that the U.S. will not hesitate to expend significant resources to protect the safety of its citizens. A raid by American commandos in a remote area of Yemen on Saturday failed to secure the release of American Luke Somers and South African teacher Pierre Korkie. Both hostages were shot as the raid unfolded. "It should be a clear and unmistakable signal to the militants in Yemen and to militants around the world that the United States and President Obama will not tolerate the unjustified detention and hostage-taking of American citizens. And we will expend significant resources to secure the release of those individuals," White House spokesman Josh Earnest said, adding that the U.S. government was unaware of independent negotiations by South Africa to secure Korkie's release. Earnest said the Obam

Iraq’s Defense Ministry says it didn't have any prior knowledge about a joint US and Kurdish military operation that rescued nearly 70 prisoners from the ISIL near the city of Kirkuk.
