Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi Death:

The death of IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is welcomed with relief in the Western world. The Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke particularly clearly.

Politicians around the world have welcomed the death of terrorist Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The self-proclaimed caliph of the Islamic State (IS) had killed itself on access by the US military on the night of Sunday.

US President Donald Trump said Baghdadi was "running and crying," "like a dog died, a coward." There was also praise from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

"The death of the Daesh leader marks a turning point in our common fight against terrorism," Erdogan wrote on Twitter.

His country had paid the "most expensive price" in the fight against the IS, but also against the Kurdish Workers' Party PKK and the Kurdish militia YPG.

Therefore, Turkey welcomed the development, it was said. PKK and YPG are classified by Turkey and IS as terrorist organizations.

Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson called the operation an important point in the fight against terrorism.

The use against the IS is thus not yet over. "We will work with our partners to stop the murderous, barbaric activities of the IS once and for all." British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said, "The world will not miss Baghdadi."

"The death of Al-Baghdadi is a tough blow against Daesh, but that's just one stage," said France's head of state Emmanuel Macron. Defeating the IS is the highest priority of France in the Middle East.

The Russian Ministry of Defense, however, there were initially only restrained statements on the death Baghdadis.

The Ministry had no secure information about the US operation, it was said. Besides, the fight against terrorism is more difficult than the destruction of leaders.

Iranian Information Minister Mohammad Javad Azari-Jahromi described Baghdadi's death as "no big deal."

"You have only killed your creature," said the minister. Iran has long accused its archenemy the USA of having established IS in the region.

Baghdadi was killed by special forces in northwestern Syria on Sunday night, according to US President Donald Trump. Al-Bagdadi had escaped into a tunnel and detonated an explosives vest.

US President Trump describes in drastic frankness the last hours of IS chief al-Baghdadi. Pictures show the scene of the secret operation. The operation against the IS-head in Syria is still in progress.

Donald Trump has described the use of US special forces in clear words and sometimes unpleasant openness, which led to the death of IS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Perhaps the US president even revealed more details than his intelligence services are right - because it may lead to conclusions about the sources from which the information about the hiding place of the most wanted man in the world came from.

Trump pursued in his words the use near the northwest Syriac town of Barischa in the border area with Turkey from the "Situation Room" in the White House.

He was surrounded by Defense Secretary Mark Esper, his security adviser Robert O'Brien, and several generals.

Everything was so clear to see "as in a movie," said Trump. The extremist chief killed himself by firing an explosive vest in a tunnel.

The whereabouts of al-Baghdadi had been located a few weeks ago, according to the US President. 

The operation had been postponed several times because the IS chief had meanwhile considered a change of residence.

According to the Iraqi intelligence agency, the US-led anti-IS coalition has reported the exact whereabouts of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

"We have worked continuously with the CIA and shared important information that Iraqi state intelligence has had on Baghdadi's movements and hiding," a representative said on Sunday.

Information on the whereabouts of the IS leader was obtained from a man and a woman from the immediate vicinity of al-Baghdadis said the intelligence agents.

The two Iraqi citizens were previously captured. Their information has led to a secret location in the desert in western Iraq. These documents were found about Baghdadi's whereabouts.

On the night of Sunday, eight US military helicopters flew to the hideout. From where Trump did not say.

The approach took according to his description 70 minutes and led through Russian-controlled airspace. Russia approved the flight.

US soldiers in helicopters under attack

When they landed, the US soldiers came under fire from the building. According to Trump, the soldiers returned from the helicopters and were able to stop the enemy fire "without delay".

The soldiers blew holes in the side of the building and stormed in. They did not want to enter through the front door, as it was equipped with booby traps.

Trump said. Dogs would have aroused him. According to the president, the IS chief dragged three of his small children with him and thus "certain death".

Because the tunnel had no exit, and the IS chief knew this. At the end of the tunnel, al-Baghdadi lit his explosives vest and killed his three children.

Trump said. Flight-assisted laboratory technicians made on-site tests to identify the dead. It was confirmed that it was the IS leader.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi - A dog, according to Trump injured

During the two-hour operation, US soldiers killed a "large number" of IS fighters, according to Trump.

Also, there have been several arrests. Eleven other children who had stayed in the property had been taken out unhurt. Whether or not more children of al-Baghdadi were among them remained unclear at first.

Also, the US military found in the plant, according to the US President valuable material on the jihadist militia and their "plans".

For the US special forces, the operation went well: None of the soldiers was killed or injured.

However, one of the US Army dogs was injured when al-Baghdadi's vest exploded and the tunnel collapsed, Trump said.

A senior member of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) said that the IS extremist had been killed on Sunday in the village of Ain al-Baida in the north of the province of Aleppo.

According to the SDF representative, the intelligence service of the militia and the US Army were involved in the killing of spokesman Abu Hassan al-Muhadschir.

Al-Muhadschir was the right hand of al-Baghdadi, said the SDF representative, who did not want to be named.
An AFP reporter saw in Ain al-Baida two air-raid destroyed vehicles and three bodies. It was unclear whether the air attacks were carried out by fighter jets or drones.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also reported the death of IS spokesman al-Muhadschir.

Little is known about the identity of al-Muhadzhir. It should not have appeared in photos and videos of the IS but is considered one of its most important figures.

Al-Muhadschir had taken over the job from IS propaganda chief Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, who was killed in a US airstrike on August 2016.

The Soufan Group analysts named Al-Adnani the second-highest IS a member.
