Islamic State militants foiled an attempt by U.S. military commandos to carry out a raid in Syria, similar to the one that killed one of the group’s leaders this month, a pro-Hezbollah Lebanese newspaper reported Wednesday.

Denying the report, a U.S. defense official said no such mission was conducted. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because special operations generally aren’t disclosed.
