The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria has seized a trove of U.S. military equipment and weaponry, according to newly released images from the intelligence website SITE.

A rocket launcher, the ID card of a U.S. soldier, grenades and other weapons can be seen in the pictures.  

The American soldier whose identification was pictured, U.S. Army Specialist Ryan Jay Larson, was not captured by ISIS according to defense officials.

“Obviously, SPC Larson is not captured – he is accounted for and with his unit despite having lost his ID card and possibly some of his equipment during recent operations,” Brigadier General Charlie Cleveland said. “Beyond that, there is a lot of equipment in those pictures."

The location near Pakistan is where 150 Army Rangers recently had a skirmish with ISIS affiliates.
