ISIS launched a horrifying terrorist attack against the United States on Monday when they shot down an American warplane, presumably killing everyone onboard.
“The crew of the U.S. warplane that was shot down by Islamic State fighters near Ayn Asad Airbase is dead,” read a statement by the Amaq news agency, the official news agency of ISIS.
According to The Political Insider, the Pentagon has not confirmed whether or not the crew was killed or captured. U.S. warplanes have been flying over western Afghanistan and eastern Syria over the last few weeks in support of a recent offensive by the Iraqi government.
Ayn al-Asad Airbase is an Iraqi Armed Forces and United States armed forces base that is located in the Province of Iraq Al Anbar. We will update you further as this story develops.
