President Trump confirms the death of ISIS founder, Al-Baghdadi
Donald Trump, US President has confirmed the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
During a press conference at the White House this morning, the President said, ”last night the United States brought the world’s number one terrorist leader to justice. Abu Bakr al-baghdadi is dead.
He was the founder and leader of ISIS. The most ruthless and violent terror organization anywhere in the world. .
The United States has been searching for Baghdadi for many years. Capturing or killing Baghdadi has been the top national security priority of my administration.”
Al-Baghdadi, who took over ISIS after his predecessor Abu Omar al-Baghdadi was killed in 2010, detonated a suicide vest, killing himself when U.S. Special Operations forces entered a compound in northern Syria where he was located.
