Waiting for the White House statement – world believes Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been killed tonight
On Sunday morning, US President Donald Trump will make a statement from the White House. According to sources, it is the abolition of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi – the leader of the Islamic State.
According to unnamed official Reuters sources in the White House, the operation was to liquidate the Islamic leader, but they have yet to confirm whether it is successful.
Four hours ago Donald Trump used his official Twitter account and wrote – “Something very big has just happened”.
According to Newsweek, a senior US Army source has unofficially confirmed to reporters that Baghdadi has been killed. According to him, the operation took place in northwestern Idlib – Syria, and was carried out by US Special Forces after intelligence was obtained.
The Pentagon declined official information, as did White House officials.
The White House spokesman announced that Donald Trump would make an “important statement” at exactly 9am (EST 1300).
