The U.S. has been active in Iraq since invading the country in 2003 to topple Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. Soon after, a number of Sunni Muslim jihadi groups engaged in a violent insurgency, forming into Al-Qaeda in Iraq, then the Islamic State of Iraq, and finally, the Islamic State militant group (ISIS), which spread into neighboring Syria in 2013.

This is a breaking story. Please check back for updates.
