ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al-baghdadi was located by the Unites States government after years on the run. Through intelligence information gathered, U.S. special forces went after Baghdadi in Idlib, Syria- one of the few areas not controlled by the Syrian government. According to President Donald Trump in a press conference- 100 U.S. special forces were sent into Syria to hunt down Baghdadi who was listed as the number one wanted terrorist in the world. Running to the end of a tunnel with no where else to go with his children, the ISIS leader blew himself up along with his children after detonating a suicide bomb vest.
They all died instantly. ISIS meaning the Islamic State In Syria- and in some cases referred to as Islamic State In Iraq has been listed as one of the most dangerous terrorist organisation in the world with no rules of engagement. They have be known to engage in be-headings along with taking women from their families and husbands, and using them as prostitutes for their fighters. A woman forced to marry and ISIS fighter is considered a lucky woman. She then avoids being sold off and being sent from men to men as a sex slave. President Trump says the ISIS leader met a fatal end like a coward. From The Guardian:
US special operations forces executed a dangerous and daring night-time raid in north-west Syria and accomplished their mission in grand style. [Baghdadi] running into a dead-end tunnel, whimpering and crying and screaming all the way.
The only ones remaining were Baghdadi in the tunnel, and he had dragged three of his young children with him. They were led to a certain death. He reached the end of the tunnel as our dogs chased him down.
The compound had to be cleared at this time, with people either surrendering or being shot and killed,” he said. “Eleven young children were moved out of the house and are uninjured.
Russia who Trump said allowed the U.S. military to fly over their controlled air space has said that such an act never occurred. Russia has questions if any such mission took place against ISIS leader.
