Dirty underwear and contested airspace: the long hunt for Baghdadi


The terrorist most likely to succeed al-Baghdadi after US military forces took him down on Saturday, Oct. 24, has also been killed in a separate raid.

"Polat Can also said", More than a month ago, the decision was made to eliminate Al Baghdadi.

Trump was likely referring to Islamic State spokesman Abu Hassan al-Muhajir, named as a potential replacement for the notorious terrorist leader.

Mr Esper said the oil field mission will also ensure income for Syrian Kurds who are counted on by Washington to continue guarding IS prisoners and helping American forces combat remnants of the group - even as President Donald Trump continues to insist all United States troops will come home.

What remains of ISIS - the so-called Islamic State in Iraq and Syria - is yet to acknowledge the death of Baghdadi who was killed in a raid by USA forces in northern Syria on Saturday.

Securing the oil fields is now part of America's mission, and Defense Secretary Mark Esper added USA forces would defend them from Russian and Syrian forces, if necessary.

The death of Haji Imam, whose real name is said to be Abd ar-Rahman Mustafa al-Qaduli, is significant because it weakens ISIS ability to rebuild its leadership and continue operations, said military officials.

Relatives of Kurdish fighters have celebrated al-Baghdadi's death. "We're protecting the dog's identity".

Secretary of Defense Mark Esper, meanwhile, said the operation "was the culmination of a multiyear, interagency effort to find him and then capture or kill him".

Pentagon officials denied any involvement in the strike, in which a second IS fighter was killed and a third was captured, though the State Department said USA assets were involved.

The media's reaction to the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was "outrageous" and partisan, Fox News contributor Mollie Hemingway said Tuesday.

Trump said he kept the operation secret to avert a leak to the press.

Vaezi added that the USA destroyed Daesh's leader but this will not eradicate the source of violence.

"Our intelligence source was involved in sending coordinates, directing the airdrop, participating in and making the operation a success until the last minute".

"A attractive dog, a talented dog, was injured and brought back", Trump said, crediting the canine's bravery for ensuring that not a single American solider was injured in the unsafe and top-secret mission.

General Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (a group that advises the President on defence matters) says the Malinois was "slightly wounded and fully recovering", but that the dog "performed a tremendous service". In 2010, he became the head of the Islamic State in Iraq (ISI), an offshoot of al-Qaida in Iraq.

As American troops bore down on Baghdadi, he fled into a "dead-end" tunnel with three of his children, Trump said, and detonated a suicide vest, killing himself and the children.
