US Army’s elite Delta Force operations to target, capture and kill top ISIS operatives commenced in Iraq. This comes after several weeks of covert preparations.

An official said the group has spent the last several weeks preparing, including setting up safe houses, establishing informant networks and coordinating operations with Iraqi and Peshmerga units.

It's the same strategy that Special Operations forces have used in previous deployments to combat zones, the officials added.

Several Pentagon and military officials declined to discuss specifics of the so-called Expeditionary Targeting Force.
