The ongoing hunt for ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi comes to a fierce end after the United States Joint Special Operations Command Delta Team raids the village of Barisha in Northern Syria, leading Baghdadi to commit suicide.

The militant leader triggered a “suicide vest,” which exploded inside the tunnel of his hideout, killing himself along with two of his children and two of his wives.

An informant, who kept track extensively on the world’s most-wanted terrorist, transferred information to the U.S. regarding his exact whereabouts and precise hiding location inside an Idlib province compound in Barisha.

Al-Baghdadi became known after his takeover as commander of the ISIS militia in 2010, transforming it into one of the most feared terrorist organizations by manipulating today’s so-called “digital age.”

“His death will allow the world to finally gain some sense of peace,” hopes Senior Claudia Brzyzek. “We won’t have to worry about him bringing any more pain to our world.”

The White House received information of a “high probability” that Baghdadi was inside the Idlib province compound, causing America’s rapid reaction.

The U.S. sent multiple aircrafts, mostly twin-rotor CH-47 helicopters, from the Al-Asad airbase in western Iraq.

Meanwhile, from the United States, President Donald Trump watched the raid live via video network. Trump describes vividly how al-Baghdadi’s body was mutilated in the blast.

“There wasn’t much left, but there are still substantial pieces that they brought back,” Trump informed.

Based upon the remains of the corpse, a DNA sampling test was conducted to make sure that the man was actually Baghdadi.

Trump later confirmed, “It was him.”

Following Baghdadi’s death, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that Turkey’s security forces captured the dead militant leader’s daughter, brother-in-law, sister, and one of his other wives.

Senior Muhaddisa Alidina believes that “this is a good thing. People in ISIS are negatively displaying Islam, Muslim people, and their religion.”

His wife has been identified as Asma Fawzi Muhammad al-Qubaysi and his daughter as Leila Jabeer. Both were previously detained in 2018 under Turkish control.

In President Trump’s address to the public to announce the death of Baghdadi, he compared the event to the national tragedy of 9/11.

Trump’s reelection campaign released to its supporters that “Trump has brought the #1 terrorist leader to justice — he’s KEEPING AMERICA SAFE.”
