(WASHINGTON) JUST IN: White House Press Conference: President Trump announces IS Leader dead in raid: POTUS said that al-Baghdadi ignited a suicide vest, killing himself and three children after he was cornered in a tunnel #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – OCt.27: President Trump announced Sunday that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi had been killed in a U.S. military raid: “Last night, the United States brought the world’s number one terrorist leader to justice,” Trump said in remarks from the East Room of the White House. “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead.”

Baghdadi’s death represents a significant symbolic victory in the battle against ISIS and marks the end of a years-long effort to track down the elusive ISIS leader, who has been reported killed multiple times in the past: The announcement will serve as a boost for Trump, who has faced scrutiny in recent weeks for his decision to withdraw U.S. troops from northern Syria – a move his critics argue greenlit a Turkish military operation against U.S.-allied Kurds. Many have worried that ISIS could resurge in the region following the withdrawal of U.S. troops.

Reports began to surface late Saturday that U.S. forces had carried out a raid in northwest Syria targeting Baghdadi and that the militant leader was believed to have been killed: Trump also teased a major announcement, writing on Twitter: “Something very big has just happened!”
