Dead end: Inside the two-hour Delta Force raid that killed ISIS leader Baghdadi

(Worthy News) – More than five years after the Islamic State first took root in Iraq and Syria, President Trump confirmed on Sunday its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was killed in Syria during a raid by U.S. special operations forces.

Baghdadi detonated a suicide vest after U.S. forces chased him into a dead-end tunnel, killing himself and three of his children he was using as human shields. The explosion largely destroyed Baghdadi’s corpse, but DNA tests taken at the site of the raid confirmed his identity, according to Trump.

Members of Delta Force’s A-Squadron carried out the operation, an elite group of soldiers selected from the best of the special operations forces community. Members of the elite 75th Ranger Regiment were also on hand for the attack. The operation itself was overseen by Joint Special Operations Command, which also coordinated Operation Neptune Spear — the raid that killed al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in 2011.
