Death of Abū Bakr al-Baghdadi 


Abū Bakr al-Baghdadi (Arabic: أبو بكر البغدادي‎; born Ibrahim Awad Ibrahim Ali al-Badri al-Samarrai,[10][11] إبراهيم عواد إبراهيم علي محمد البدري السامرائي‎; 28 July 1971 – 26 October 2019)[12] was the Iraqi-born leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). The group has been designated as a terrorist organisation by the United Nations, as well as by the European Union and many individual states, while Baghdadi was considered a Specially Designated Global Terrorist by the United States until his death in October 2019.[6] In June 2014, he was chosen by the majlis al-shura (consultative council or Shura council), representing the ahl al-hall wal-aqd[13] of the Islamic State as their caliph.[14]

Baghdadi was directly involved in atrocities and human rights violations conducted by ISIL. These include genocide of Yazidis in Iraq, extensive sex slavery, organized rape, floggings, and systematic executions. He directed terrorist activities and massacres. He embraced brutality as part of the organization's propaganda efforts, producing videos displaying mass crucifixions, sex slavery and executions via hacking, stoning, and burning.[15][16]

From 2011, a reward of $10 million was offered for Baghdadi by the US State Department, increasing to $25 million in 2017, [17] for information or intelligence on his whereabouts to enable capture, dead or alive.[18][19] On 26 October 2019, al-Baghdadi killed himself and three children by detonating a suicide vest during the Barisha raid conducted by the Joint Special Operations Command's (JSOC) 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta (SFOD-D), commonly known as Delta Force, in Syria's northwestern Idlib Province.[12][20]

On 26 October 2019, US Joint Special Operations Command's (JSOC) Delta Force conducted a raid through air space controlled by Russia and Turkey into the rebel-held Idlib province of Syria on the border with Turkey to capture al-Baghdadi.[168][169] US President Donald Trump and his officials stated that while being hunted by American military dogs and after being cornered in a tunnel, al-Baghdadi died by self-detonating a suicide vest, killing three young children, possibly his own, as well.[170][171] The raid was launched based on a CIA Special Activities Division's intelligence effort that located the leader of ISIS.[172][20] This operation was conducted during the withdrawal of US forces from northeast Syria, adding to the complexity.[173][174] The Syrian Democratic Forces provided direct and extensive support to the operation.[175]

President Trump announced on 27 October 2019 that American forces used helicopters, jets and drones through airspace controlled by Russia and Turkey.[176] He said that "Russia treated us great... Iraq was excellent. We really had great cooperation" and Turkey had been informed of the operation prior to its commencement.[171] He also thanked Russia, Turkey, Syria, Iraq, and the Syrian Kurdish forces for their support.[171]

The Turkish Defence Ministry confirmed on 27 October that Turkish and US military authorities exchanged and coordinated information ahead of an attack in Syria’s Idlib.[177][178] Fahrettin Altun, a senior aide to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, also stated, among other things, that "Turkey was proud to help the United States, our NATO ally, bring a notorious terrorist to justice" and that Turkey "will continue to work closely with the United States and others to combat terrorism in all its forms and manifestations."[179] The Russian Major-General Igor Konashenkov responded to Trump's announcement by stating that "The Russian Ministry of Defense does not have reliable information on the operation by US servicemen."[179] Russia claimed they may have killed him by an airstrike on 4 apartment buildings in Raqqa city on 28 May 2017 but was still seeking confirmation;[180][181] however Russia TV stated the news of his death on 27 October 2019 was the first to be confirmed.[182] A DNA profiling was done immediately, confirming his identity.[171]
