The operation carried out on Wednesday targeted Bilal al-Sudani, a key financial facilitator for the global terrorist organization. President Joe Biden gave final approval to carry out the operation this week.

US officials declined to discuss whether any intelligence was collected, how the US forces carried out the operation, or even how many American troops were involved.
