REPORTS: ISIS Leader Killed In US Operation, Trump Says “Something Very Big Has Just Happened”

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is believed to be dead.

American officials are claiming that ISIS Leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been killed in a US raid that took place in Syria.

Here’s what NBC News reported:

“The world’s most wanted terrorist, Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was the target of a deadly U.S.-led raid in northwestern Syria, sources told NBC News early Sunday.

Forensic testing is underway, but officials believe al-Baghdadi is among the dead, the sources said.

A U.S. Special Ops mission targeted the ISIS leader near Barisha, Syria, overnight in a mission that included helicopters, jets and U.S. drones. The U.S. fired from the air and then landed and gathered intelligence, the sources said. Several others were also killed in a convoy.

There were no reports of U.S. casualties.”

On Twitter, US President Donald Trump Tweeted a cryptic message:

“Something very big has just happened!”

The ISIS leader has been reported dead before, but this appears to be the most definitive instance.

On Twitter, Defense One noted their sources said Baghdadi detonated a suicide vest:

“UPDATE: ISIS leader #Baghdadi is believed to have detonated his own suicide vest, multiple sources confirm to @DefenseOne.”

Now, the world will wait and see what the US President has to say, with Trump planning to speak at 9:00 am eastern time.

I agree Tom. This man has been inflicting death and terror on people for way too long. The sad thing is though, there will be another one just like him rise from the bowels of hell. People like him have no regard for human life. I agree with you he should burn in Hell.

It will be very nice when all the forced immigrants will be able to return safely to their home countries, to rebuild their lives and homes, with their families and friends so many of them wish they could.

President Trump and his bragging of US might just stirred up a huge hornets nest that the rest of the world is about to pay. Don’t think this will not bring out revenge by many groups that hate the US and it’s allies in the west.
