The United States President Donald Trump made the massive announcement about US forces killing ISIS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on Sunday. Addressing a press conference, Trump said that US forces carried out an operation in the north-west Syrian region of Idlib to kill ISIS chief Baghdadi. Trump said that the United States lost no soldier in the operation and that Baghdadi died 'like a coward crying, screaming, whimpering'. As the US president addressed questions of the media related to the operation, he said that ISIS used the Internet better than everyone but also said that they did not use it 'better than Donald Trump'.
"ISIS use the internet better than anyone in the world, except perhaps for Donald Trump," he said.
Detailing about the operation, Trump said that al-Baghdadi was in a room with 11 children. He said that the operation began at 5'o clock and lift-off started 'moments after that'. He then added that the world's most dangerous terrorist died "like a coward". He said that Baghdadi died at the end of the tunnel as coalition forces attack dogs chased him. According to the US president, Baghdadi immolated himself with 3 children after which his cave was bombed.
"Last night, the United States brought the world’s number 1 terrorist leader to justice Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi. He died in his compound in a tunnel whimpering crying and screaming. Last night was a great night for the United States and for the world. We will continue to pursue ISIS terrorists to their brutal end. ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi was a depraved and sick man. Now he's gone. He died a coward, running and crying. We had him (Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi) under surveillance for a couple of weeks. The operation against Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi involved eight helicopters and a large group of fighters," Trump said.
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was reportedly born in the Iraqi city of Samarra in 1971. He joined Al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) and rose to high ranks after the faction broke away to form ISIS. He then declared himself the Caliph of the old Caliphate from the Al -Nuri mosque in Mosul in 2014. After taking the leadership, al-Baghdadi captured major parts of Syria after a civil war broke in the country in the aftermath of the Arab Spring in 2010.
