A video allegedly showing last week’s U.S. Special Forces raid against an ISIS prison compound in Iraq has surfaced online.
The video, which was obtained by NBC News via Arab24, shows what appears to be helmet-cam footage of soldiers raiding a building as gunfire is heard in the background. Eventually, the soldiers are seen escorting a group of frightened Arab prisoners through a hallway. A black ISIS battle flag can be seen hanging in the background.
According to NBC News, the raid was carried out as a joint rescue mission with Kurdish commandos who feared the prisoners being held at the facility would soon be executed. In all, 70 people were reportedly rescued, although an American, Delta Force commando Master Sgt. Joshua Wheeler, was killed in the process.
