ISIS leader al-Baghdadi killed in US raid in Syria - Trump confirms

US President Donald Trump has announced that Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed during a US military raid in northwest Syria, confirming an avalanche of rumors on the terrorist’s death.

It was reported earlier that military choppers, planes, and even drones provided air cover as US special forces engaged targets on the ground in Idlib province – the last major terrorist stronghold in the country. Citing unnamed officials, US media outlets said that al-Baghdadi detonated a suicide vest during the operation.

Hours before Trump’s announcement, a commander of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), Mazloum Abdi, hailed the “successful, historic operation as a result of joint intelligence work with the US.”

  1. Hope Trump's Exceptional Knowledge allows him the Liberty to know that One Baghdadi has been eliminated but there are Thousands in the Middle East waiting to fill those Shoes. So sleep well Mr. Trump .

  2. The USA created Al-Qaeda to fight the Soviets in Afghanistan. The United States created Isis which was formed in the aftermath of the destruction of Iraq by the United States under false pretenses.

  3. He wants a buyer for the oil he doesn't own in Syria and will be looking at getting $ 70 -100 billion.
    Americans robbed Iraq of billions of dollars and stole their oil.
    Trump is a pure liar when it comes to what it cost USA in Iraq.

    Hasaka, SANA- In framework of investing terrorism, the US troops have been working on transporting hundreds of Daesh (ISIS) terrorists whom they detain from al-Jazeera region to Iraq after gathering them at the US illegitimate bases.

    Media and local sources said that the US occupation forces have transported dozens of Daesh detainees from al-Houl Camp, east of Hasaka city in parallel with intensive overflights of the occupation’s helicopters over the camp.

    They added that this came less than 24 hours after transporting 230 foreign terrorists from the terrorist organization from al-Malkiya prison to al-Shadadi prison in Hasaka southern countryside.

    After forming the so-called “International Coalition” in August 2014 under the pretext of fighting Daesh terrorist organization, today Washington through its occupational forces single-handedly decides the fate of Daesh terrorists whom it arrests to reuse and invest them in attacking states in order to implement its agendas against any state and achieve its interests, and to blur any evidence on its involvement in a secret alliance with that terrorist organization on the other hand.

    Since the beginning of the Turkish offensive on the Syrian territory, the US occupation forces have transported about hundreds of Daesh terrorists and their families from the Syrian territories to Iraq in six batches as it made its illegitimate base in al-Shadadi, south of Hasaka a center for gathering terrorists and their wives and over the past few day the US forces have transported hundreds of terrorists and their wives from al-Houl Camp and other prisons to al-Shadadi base to be transported later aboard helicopters to Iraq.

    It is noteworthy that the US occupation troops have been till recently transporting Daesh terrorists aboard helicopters from one place to another at night to save them from the Syrian Arab Army in different Syrian areas at night, and over the past few day, the US troops have been continuing to transport their tools of Daesh terrorists overtly without any embarrassment.

    Despite of the US continued denial of any relation between it and Daesh terrorist organization, tens of facts have exposed the close relation between the US with its military and intelligence services and Daesh terrorist organization as it has used this terrorist organization to achieve its agendas in the region and to impose new facts on the ground that would serve these agendas.

    Washington has directly supplied Daesh terrorist organization with US weapons and ammunition, in addition to buying the oil which has been stolen by Daesh from the Syrian oilfields through brokers including Erdogan’s son and members of his family with the aim of supporting this terrorist organization, in addition to facilitating the passage of foreign fighters through the borders into the Syrian territories to make up for the shortage in the ranks of Daesh due to the losses inflicted upon the terrorist organization during the operations of the Syrian Army in different areas, particularly in Deir Ezzor and the countryside of Homs, Aleppo, Raqqa and Hama.

  5. Died like a dawg, screaming etc. well, I can imagine Eric, Ivanka and Junior trying to catch up to old Bonespurs who screaming "beam me up Ruuudee" as he legged it down the tunnel with vicious animals and foaming dogs in hot pursuit,,,,,

  6. WTF is he talking about? What resistance? Who was fighting back? There is no ISIS left…by his own account!!! Oh man, this sounds like total BS…just listen to it all. He can't even confirm a timeline, just keeps shifting and dodging and trickling BS annecdotal distracting "info". He speaks like a total BS artist.

  7. This is fake, where is the body, they keep on framing this attacks and killings of ISIS leaders when they're the one funding and arming them, no evidence that show he was killed, the'll say it was thrown in the sea just like bin laden, this is created and faked by the CIA they're pretty good with this kinda jokes i guess probably the best joke of the year.

  8. 27:50 so the conclusion is they captured some fighters and now they gonna train some of them to make the future threats. The threats gonna be deployed and then used to grant accessto the area of interest.

  9. Not a word about all the dead kids in Yemen caused by U S bombs. Then he brings up God, well god will never back a Country who sells Trillions in weapons and kills hundreds of thousands of people in other lands for oil and gold and power. Sorry America, War will come to you to too. All Terrorist should be killed, depending on how you define terrorist. The U S has killed thousands upon thousands of innocent people. And all these terrorist groups all have U S weapons.
