A U.S. service member embedded with Kurdish Peshmerga forces in Iraq was killed Thursday when his all-terrain vehicle ran over a bomb north of Mosul, two U.S. officials confirmed to Fox News.

It marked the first death of a U.S. service member in Iraq since the start of the operation to retake Mosul from Islamic State fighters earlier this week. At the request of the military, Fox News is withholding the service member’s branch of the military.
