USA: ISIS Leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi Assassinated by US Army in Syria
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the head of the Islamic State, has been exterminated in a US military administration in Syria, numerous American media have announced.
The statements came after an obscure tweet by US President Donald Trump. “Something very big has just happened!” Mr. Trump declared, without giving any circumstances.
It was initially published by Newsweek which stated that the United States soldiery carried a special operations raid targeting one of its most high-value targets and al-Baghdadi was supposed to be executed.
President Donald Trump authorized the charge nearly a week before it took place, the statement asserted.
Earlier, statements said that US military helicopters hovered over Syria’s northwestern Idlib territory, triggering speculation about an operation facing ISIS.
Newsweek announced that a senior Pentagon executive familiar with the operation said that Baghdadi was the target of the top-confidential action. The Defense Department has told the White House they have “high confidence” that the high-value target killed was Baghdadi, but moreover, verification is pending.
This is not the first occasion that a report maintaining his death has begun. He was announced killed or injured various times since becoming the head of the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) in 2010 and published the captured region as “caliphate” in 2014.
In April this year, al-Baghdadi has emerged in a video released by the terror group’s media arm Al Furqan for the initial time in five years.
In the 2014 video, he had announced the occupied region in Syria and Iraq an Islamic “caliphate”.
