Leader of Isis Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi Is Said to have been killed By the US military

Isis leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed after he was "cried and screamed" by U.S. special forces in a dead-end tunnel where he ignited an explosive vest, killing himself and three children.

The "dangerous and daring" raid was carried out last night in northwestern Syria, and Donald Trump announced the successful operation in a dramatic address to the nation on Sunday morning.
He's been a sick and depraved man and he's gone now, "said Mr. Trump." He died as a cat, and he died like a coward.

After the bomb was detonated, the tunnel caved in and the "mutilated" body of Baghdadi was recovered and examined, providing "solid, immediate and completely conclusive" confirmation that it was the terrorist that the U.S. has been searching for so long.
Trump watched the operation live with some of his closest advisors and wondered at the value of the video feed for reporters, saying it was "like a film."
The president said two weeks had been scoping out the heavily armed lair of Baghdadi.

Special forces spent a total of about two hours in the compound and scoured the area collecting "highly sensitive" data after the killing of Baghdadi.

The death of Baghdadi is likely to be a major blow to the terror group.
The jihadist leader, who in 2010 became emir of the group the Islamic State of Iraq, brought it from an underground insurgency to a proto-state that controlled over 10 million people. The once-powerful caliphate has crumbled, and in prison cells, thousands of his soldiers have been killed and languished.
Western intelligence agencies have believed since the fall of the caliphate earlier this year that Baghdadi had gone into hiding somewhere in Iraq or Syria's desert regions. He also managed to release sporadic audio and video messages to Isis supporters, despite being the world's most wanted terrorist.

It was rumored that Baghdadi had been killed many times. In 2017, Russia said it was investigating whether he and 300 other militants were killed by one of its airstrikes on Raqqa Town. Other reports suggested that he had been killed by a joint attack led by the United States.
However, the findings seem to be more detailed this time. Online posted witnesses and videos report gunfire and helicopters near the town of Barisha, only 5 miles from the Turkish border, around midnight.
After midnight on Saturday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Syrian war monitor, announced an attack by an eight-helicopter squadron followed by a warplane in the Barisha area north of Idlib City, adding that Isis operatives were thought to be hiding in the area.
It said the helicopters attacked IS positions for about 120 minutes with heavy attacks, during which heavy weapons jihadists fired at the aircraft. The Observatory based in London, which works on the ground through a network of activists, reported 9 people's death as a result of the helicopter assault by the coalition.
There were conflicting reports about who and what details paved the way for the operation in the hours following the raid.

Iraq's intelligence service said it had provided the U.S.-led anti-Isis coalition with Baghdadi's exact location coordinates, paving the way for the raid that allegedly killed him.
After arresting an Iraqi man and woman from within his "inner circle," an Iraqi intelligence official told Reuters, the agency learned about the location of Baghdadi from documents found at a secret location in the western desert of Iraq.

"The Turkish army was familiar with the raid last night. On the ground, we're going to continue coordinating our actions, "they said.
TRUMP CONFIRMS DEATH OF ISIS LEADER

The suspected death of Baghdadi comes at a time when many feared that Isis was on the verge of a revival. Turkey's military operation against northeastern Kurdish forces has caused mass displacement and instability, leading to a decline in anti-Isis operations.
The organization will now go through a search to replace one of the most dangerous leaders of jihadists in the world. Baghdadi was not only the military chief of the Islamic State but a self-proclaimed religious and spiritual figure. He was central to the violence of the party and its appeal to propaganda, attracting followers from all over the world.
Born in 1971 in the Iraqi city of Samarra and radicalized by the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, he claimed to have come down from the Prophet Muhammad.
