The government of Iraq's autonomous Kurdish region Sunday released footage it said was of the brazen commando operation it carried out with elite U.S. troops at a jihadi-run prison. Elite Kurdish forces supported by U.S. Delta Force fighters freed about 70 people who were being held by ISIS near the Iraqi city of Hawijah during a raid Thursday. According to the KRSC, the operation was carried out by 48 Kurdish and 27 U.S. forces and resulted in the release of "69 hostages" and killing of more than 20 ISIS members.
