An American official confirmed on Monday that the U.S. military had conducted a raid into Syria, killing at least eight. Syrian foreign minister Walid Muallem called the attack a "criminal and terrorist aggression." The U.S. raid has been denounced as a violation of international law by the Syrian, Lebanese and Qatari governments, as well as The Arab League.

 

The same American official who confirmed the raid claims that the soldiers’ objective was to capture or kill Abu Ghadiya, a prominent organizer of anti-American fighters around the Syrian-Iraqi border who has been suspected of possible links to al-Qaeda. The same official also claims that Ghadiya was killed during the campaign, and called the invasion, "successful."
