An U.S. Navy SEAL was shot and killed Tuesday by “direct fire” from Islamic State┬ámilitants who stormed through defenses set up by Kurdish Peshmerga troops in northern Iraq, the U.S.-led coalition and officials said.

The unnamed service member was advising Peshmerga forces in the region but was less than 2 miles behind the front lines, Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook said in a statement. A defense official told Fox News the service member was killed by small arms fire, likely from an AK-47 rifle.
