President Donald Trump announced on Sunday that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is now dead.
“Last night, the United States brought the world’s number one terrorist leader to justice,” Trump said. “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead.”
Trump said U.S. Special Operations Forces had “executed a dangerous and daring night time raid” in northwestern Syria and that “no personnel were lost in the operation.”
Baghdadi and three children died after he detonated a suicide vest, according to the President.
“He died after running into a dead end tunnel, whimpering and crying and screaming all the way,” Trump said.
