Video: US special forces troops film themselves getting gunned down during ISIS ambush in west Africa

At least three US special forces troops (service branch unknown but likely army) have been gunned down during a well-executed ambush by Islamic State terrorists in western Africa.

According to sources, the engagement took place near the Mali-Niger border.

It appears that ISIS militants achieved full surprise over their American opponents on the point of contact, getting the jump on the small special forces fire team during the earliest phase of the clashes.

Possibly due to the fact it was outnumbered and lacked fire support (including basic weapons like mortars), the US special forces unit was never able to regain any kind of tactical initiative.

As shown in the video below, the eventual death of the first US operative prompted a rout of the remaining two soldiers who were eventually hunted down and killed.

It appears that efforts to call for helicopter evacuation (using smoke) were carried out in vain.

I’ve included the HTF profiles of the four SOF soldiers killed in this fight:

Staff Sgt Bryan C. Black – I think this may be the first casualty of the fight

Staff Sgt Jeremiah W. Johnson – Supposedly The soldier who was driving the Toyota

Staff Sgt. Dustin M. Wright – Supposedly the soldier who’s cam we’re watching in this video

Sgt. La David T. Johnson – Found a few miles from the ambush site.
