The Islamic State Amaq News “agency” has put out a statement claiming that 2 “Western soldiers” were killed near the “terrorist capital” of Raqqa, Syria. Which alleged Western country the purportedly killed soldiers were from was not specified.

Last month, Senior Chief Petty Officer Scott Cooper Dayton, 42, was announced as the first US casualty in combat against the Islamic State in Syria. Cooper was killed on November 24, Thanksgiving, by an IED in Ayn Issa, Syria.

Ayn Issa is about 35-miles north of Raqqa, the terrorist “capital” of the Islamic State.

ISIS took complete control of Raqqa in January 2014. It then converted the Armenian Catholic Church of the Martyrs into its headquarters. Soon after, outlying regions of Raqqa were “annexed” into “Wilayat Raqqa,” or “State of Raqqa,” one of the many states of the so-called Islamic State.

Ayn Issa is “part” of Wilayat Raqqa. Last month, Al-Jazeera reported that US-backed Syrian rebels have announced their intention to retake Raqqa.
