U.S. Navy SEAL’s Heroism in Helping Repulse ISIS Attack on Christian Town in Iraq Recalled | Christian Post

U.S. Navy SEAL Charles Keating IV, 31, was killed in action on May 3, 2016 when ISIS launched a major assault on the Christian town of Telskuf in Iraq, reports say.

Accounts of that battle have been well covered by the media, but one thing that was not well documented was who exactly he died protecting, according to Faithwire.

The news outlet interviewed the commander of Peshmerga forces in the area during that time, Nineveh Plains Force Commander Safa Elyas, who provided new information on Keating and how his heroism will be long remembered.

Safa said on the morning of May 3rd, they learned that ISIS was mobilizing its forces and preparing a major attack on Telskuf, an ancient Christian town in the Nineveh Plains, which is an area that dates back to Biblical days.
