"Earlier today a U.S. Marine providing force protection fire support at a recently established coalition fire base near Makhmour in northern Iraq was killed after coming under ISIL rocket fire," Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook said in a statement. He used an acronym for the Islamic State group.
