A rare US helicopter raid on a government-held village in Syria's northeast killed an Islamic State official hiding out there on Thursday, two security sources said. The United States has carried out previous raids in Syria against members of Islamic State, but Thursday's would be the first known operation in a zone held by forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad.

Early on Thursday, US special forces carried out a rare operation on the government-held village of Muluk Saray in the northeastern province of Hasakeh, Syrian state television said in its Telegram channel. It said one person was killed and others were captured. It gave no further details on their identities.
