Watch – Pentagon releases video of Delta Force raid on the al-Baghdadi compound
U.S. Central Command has released video and photos of the raid on the compound of the eliminated ISIS leader, Muslim arch-terrorist Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi following a press briefing from Marine Gen. Frank McKenzie.
U.S. special operations forces conducted a raid on al-Baghdadi’s compound in Syria’s northwestern Idlib province on Saturday night, where the terrorist leader blew himself up with a suicide vest following a “brief firefight.”
General McKenzie also told reporters that six terrorists -four men and two women- were eliminated in the raid, and that the children who blew up with al-Baghdadi were probably “under 12” years old.
McKenzie also suggested that al-Baghdadi may have fired from the tunnel before he detonated his bomb-laden vest.
“The thug who tried so hard to intimidate others spent his last moments in utter fear, panic, and dread, terrified of the American forces coming down on him,” President Donald Trump said on Sunday.
No U.S. military personnel were injured in the operation. Conan, a military working dog on the raid, was injured but has since returned to full duty.
