Trump announces ISIS #2 leader “terminated by American troops”


A day after announcing that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in a U.S. special operations raid in Northern Syria, President Donald Trump has announced that al-Baghdadi’s second in command was also “terminated by American troops” over the weekend.

Trump made the announcement via Twitter.

Al-Baghdadi is said to have ran from advancing troops and detonated a suicide bomb, killing himself and three children.
