U.S. Service Member Killed by ISIS

Pentagon officials said Tuesday than a U.S. service member was killed in combat in Iraq as “a result of enemy fire” when ISIS fighters broke through the Kurdish line of defense. The serviceman reportedly died near the city of Irbil. He was two or three miles behind the front line, according to U.S. officials. “It is a combat death,” Defense Secretary Ash Carter said. “Americans are at risk today every single day here.”
