Explosions, then men in black who enter a building. On October 30, the US government unveiled footage of the assault on Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, who was killed on the night of October 26, near the village of Barisha in northwestern Syria.
After several unsuccessful attempts, the US special forces overcame a nine-year-old manhunt. In the summer of 2019, a leading jihadist in the ranks of the terrorist group warns the US military of the location of the "caliph", a complex located in the province of Idlib. Helped by the Kurdish and Iraqi intelligence services, the CIA and the US military monitor the place for several weeks. It is only on October 24 that the presence of the head of the Islamic State is confirmed. The White House is warned, and the raid is launched on October 26, killing Al-Baghdadi. The victorious operation is announced a few hours later by Donald Trump on television.
