Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi 1ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, killed himself on Saturday to avoid capture by US S special forces who raided his compound in northern Syria near midnight on Saturday.

His death over the weekend is seen as a huge blow against global terrorism, and a decisive blow to the once-potent extremist group that has now been routed all across the swaths of Iraq and Syria that it once controlled.
It’s also a victory for President Trump, who took office vowing to crush ISIS — and has, who tweeted that al-Baghdadi “died like a dog, he died like a coward,” Trump said Sunday morning.
US forces had had him under surveillance for weeks before the president gave the go-ahead for a mission to capture or kill.
According to Trump Russia, Turkey, Syria and Iraq, as well as Kurdish forces, assisted with intelligence, search and cornering of the terrorist leader.
The raid also led to the capture of considerable intel that should help run down scattered remnants and assets of the terrorist group across Syria and Iraq.
