[Ed. – Well. As long as it was only a “lucky strike.”]
An American Marine was killed and others seriously injured Saturday when a rocket fired by ISIS landed near his position in the town of Makhmur, 75 miles southeast of Mosul, a U.S. defense official told Fox News.
The official did not want to give the exact number of wounded but said the number is less than five. They were flown to a hospital away from the base, the official said.
“It was a lucky strike by ISIS,” the official said..
The Pentagon is expected to make an announcement shortly. …
The soldier is the second American killed fighting ISIS since combat operations began in August 2014.
