A rare US helicopter raid on a government-held village in Syria's northeast on Thursday killed one Islamic State official, wounded another and led to the US capture of two more individuals, a US official told Reuters.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the Islamic State member who was targeted in the raid had been responsible for beheading two members of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces.

There were no US military casualties in the operation and no civilian casualties, the official said.
