ISIS Leader al-Baghdadi Is Dead: Trump

POTUS Donald Trump has announced through a televised address that a daring American commando raid in Syria this weekend culminating in the death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State. He was being chased for five years. President Trump claimed significant victory even as American forces are pulling out of the area amidst opposition from various quarters.“Last night, the United States brought the world’s No. 1 terrorist leader to justice, Trump said .Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead.” Presient   Trump said. Al-Baghdadi was chased to the end of an underground tunnel, “whimpering and crying and screaming all the way” as he was pursued by American military dogs. Accompanied by three children, Mr. al-Baghdadi then detonated a suicide vest, blowing up himself and the children, President Trump said claimed.

The New York Time says The death of Mr. al-Baghdadi may be a signal moment in the generation-long war against terrorists as well as in Mr. Trump’s presidency, eliminating a ruthless enemy who beheaded American captives and at one time controlled a swath of the Middle East roughly the size of Britain. But terrorist leaders have been killed.

The elusive Islamic State commander, died during a U.S. military operation in Syria, an important breakthrough more than five years after the militant chief launched a self-proclaimed caliphate that inspired violence worldwide. Last night, the United States brought the world’s number one terrorist leader to justice,” Trump said in a televised announcement from the White House. “He was a sick and depraved man, and now he’s gone.” 

The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), whose troops have fought alongside U.S. forces, indicated that they had provided intelligence for the operation.“For five months there has been joint intel cooperation on the ground and accurate monitoring, until we achieved a joint operation to kill Abu Bakir al-Bagdadi,” its commander, Gen. Mazloum Abdi, said on Twitter, using an alternate spelling of the terrorist leader’s name. “He died like a dog,” Mr. Trump said. “He died like a coward, ”The New York Times  quoted him saying.(image courtesy : The New York Times)
