Shell of American chopper found in Syria following raid on ISIS leader

The shell of a US chopper was found in Syria during a rain on a former ISIS leader. The burned-out remains were spotted in the Syrian city of Afrin following the US Special Forces mission which took out IS leader Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi.

US officials confirmed the success of the mission, claiming the overnight operation lasted two hours with President Biden revealing that Qurayshi blew himself and family members up as the raid was in progress.

The Pentagon claimed the MH-60 Black Hawk chopped landed due to a maintenance issue before being rigged by US troops for demolition as it couldn’t make the return flight safely.

After the raid President Biden declared that “this horrible terrorist leader is no more” as he spoke to the nation Thursday about a U.S. Special Operations counterterrorism mission in which Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi, the leader of the Islamic State militant group, was killed.

“Last night’s operation took a major terrorist leader off the battlefield, and it sent a strong message to terrorists around the world: We will come after you and find you,” Biden said from the White House.
