U.S. President Donald Trump confirmed that leader of the terrorist organization ISIS Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed during the special operation held by the American military in the north-east of Syria as Fox News reported on Facebook.
“ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead,” Trump said.
He confirmed that Baghdadi detonated an explosive vest when he understood that he cannot hide from the military. Two women and three children died with him. There are no casualties among the American military.
Trump thanked the military, workers of the special services and all people involved in the operation.
“He died like a coward,” the American leader concluded.
Earlier the number of American mass media reported about the elimination of al-Baghdadi. It was known that he detonated the vest with explosives to avoid the detention. However, the DNA test and biometric test should be held to prove it.
