Trump: Al-Baghdadi died in a tunnel, whimpering and screaming before detonating himself
BREAKING: President Trump gave a press conference at the White House. Last night the US brought the “world’s greatest terrorist leader to justice. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead,” he said.
Baghdadi was “a sick and depraved man and now he’s gone”. He was “vicious and violent and he died in a vicious and violent way”, he added.
The mission was carried out around midnight in Syria after the US received actionable intelligence regarding Baghdadi in recent days.
Videos posted online show coalition airstrikes on al-Baghdadi’s compound in Idlib, gunfire and the aftermath: a burned car, charred bodies, torn limbs left at the scene and a housing complex that has been reduced to rubble.
