A U.S. Special Operations assault force captured an ISIS operative during a recent raid in northern Iraq, a U.S. official confirmed to Fox News on Tuesday.
The official would not discuss specifics of the raid, including the identity of the captured militant, due to the sensitivity of the mission. The operation was first reported on by CNN. A report in The New York Times described the operative as a "significant" member of the terror group.
