A U.S. service member was killed Thursday near Mosul, Iraq.
Not many details have been released, but officials told Fox News the American was critically injured when his vehicle ran over an IED. He later died from his wounds.
The service member was the first American to be killed as part of the large-scale military offensive on Mosul, which is one of the last urban ISIS strongholds left in Iraq.
