Syrians Say U.S. Helicopter Fire Killed Civilians During The Raid On Baghdadi

A woman walks past a wrecked van near the northwestern Syrian village of Barisha. Local residents and medical staff tell NPR that noncombatant civilians were killed and injured in the van the night of the U.S. raid on the compound of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

A Syrian man says his arm was blown off and two friends were killed by U.S. helicopter fire during the assault on ISIS’s leader. A defense official said the military will review what happened.
