Syrian War Report – October 28, 2019: US Forces Kill al-Baghdadi In Ovenight Raid On Idlib Province

U.S. Special Operations forces eliminated ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi during a nighttime raid into northwestern Syria on October 26, President Donald Trump officially announced. According to the President, Baghdadi died with his 3 young children after activating his suicide vest. Baghdadi’s body was mutilated by the blast. However, Trump said, “test results gave certain and positive identification.”

A large number of Baghdadi’s fighters and companions were killed and 11 young children were moved out of the operation site, the President added. He also thanked Russia, Turkey, Iraq and Syria, including Kurds, for “support”. He praised the “great cooperation” with Russia, which allegedly opened up airspace under its control to allow US aircraft to use the area.

Earlier, reports appeared that eight military helicopters carried out an operation, including delivering strikes, near the village of Barisha in the Syrian province of Idlib, near the Turkish border. At least 7 people, including 3 children, were killed, according to local sources.

Iraqi sources claimed that a group of senior ISIS and al-Qaeda commanders was killed along the ISIS leader. These were Baghdadi’s deputy – Abu Said al-Iraqi, his bodyguard – Ghazwan al-Rawi, the head of ISIS security in Syria – Abu al-Yaman, and Abu Mohamad al-Halabi, a prominent commander of the Syrian al-Qaeda-affiliated militant group, Horas al-Din. The family of Abu Mohamad al-Halabi was also allegedly killed.

The Russian Defense Ministry commented on Trump’s statement by saying that it has no verifiable information confirming the ‘yet another’ elimination of al-Baghdadi. A defense ministry spokesman Maj.Gen. Igor Konashenkov added that Russia also has no info about the supposed opening of airspace for US aircraft.

The Trump administration needed an operation to eliminate al-Baghdadi to once again take credit for ‘eliminating ISIS’ and get a PR success for Trump’s ‘mission accomplished’ claims and the withdrawal of US troops from northern Syria. With these developments, Trump will be able to explain his administration’s Middle East strategy to the internal audience ahead of the upcoming presidential election in 2020.

Another important factor is that the US action once again revealed the double-faced policy of Western states and mainstream media that have been promoting northwestern Syria, including the province of Idlib, as a stronghold of the ‘democratic opposition’ to the ‘bloody regime’ of Bashar al-Assad. In fact, this ‘democratic opposition’ does not exist and the Greater Idlib area is almost fully controlled by various radicals and terrorists. So, the ISIS Leader and his inner circle were free to hide there, near the Turkish border.

    What they’re not telling you is that al-Baghdadi v3.0 was sheltering in the last kitten hospital in Idlib. The US just destroyed it like the kittens lives didn’t even matter! Evil bastards…

    • PZIVJ

      Off topic from the kitten fiasco: :)
      Do you find it odd some stated the raid came from Erbil, Iraq. And US thanked Russia for clearing the airspace, yet Russia denies this. It’s as if somebody is trying to cover up Turkey’s involvement in this operation. That may have been part of the arrangement to let the raid originate in Turkey? Hmm

  • gustavo

    WOW, possible identification !!! Is this another Bin Laden theater ?

  • alexis

    This action had to come. Bagdhadi was a witness of many events and relations between ISIL and Turkey, USA, Western coutries, Saudi Aerabia or Gulf states…only death people dont speak…

  • Ed

    Well, according to most reports I have read today, apparently his death is not expected to hamper the ability of Daesh fighters to launch attacks and we should also now be fearful of reprisals. There is even an article on Sky News which is reporting that the group is actually ‘expanding’!! If that’s the case, what was the fucking point in going to the trouble of killing this guy?!!

    Al-Baghdadi Gang was a US proxy, Ben-Laden a CIA agent
    Testimonies is an embarrassment if political changes occur

    Pentagon signs up more than 10,000 former Isis jihadists

    The Pentagon has incorporated between 10 and 15 000 former Daesh jihadists into its new Syrian Border Security Force in Syria (SBSF).

    The same number of former Daesh jihadists has been sent to Afghanistan.

    The bulk of the SBSF is made up of soldiers of the “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF). The SDF itself is established around Units for the Protection of the People (YPG), the sister militia of the PKK in Syria.

    230 of these soldiers will be trained by the US Army.

    So, more than 10,000 former Isis jihadists will fight on the side of the Syrian Kurds under the Pentagon’s direct command.

    The Pentagon intends to proceed with its own plan for the “Rojava”, rejecting France’s plan. The Pentagon’s idea is to establish something akin to a pseudo state, comparable to the unrecognized state of the Iraqi Kurdistan, organized according to the anarchist model of Murray Bookchin.

    So by this decision to incorporate them into the SBSF, the former Isis jihadists have suddenly become atlantists, secular and anarchist

    How Bulgaria supplied drugs and weapons to Al-Qaïda and Daesh

    by Thierry Meyssan

    The best-kept secrets must be revealed in the end. The mafia cartel which governs Bulgaria has been caught supplying drugs and weapons to Al-Qaïda and Daesh, at the demand of the CIA, both in Libya and Syria. The affair is all the more serious since Bulgaria is a member of NATO and the European Union.

    How hard it is to believe to these “WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION.” Not even a good Hollywood movie can convince people of Bin Laden death.

    ISIS was a project of CIA nazis from the very begining. USA is empire of Devil!

    Special Forces managed to grab the hardware Baghdadi was using to maintain direct communications with the US State Department. Its likely Trump found where Baghdadi was after tracking Nancy Pelosi and Schiff’s movements as they went to Syria to meet him.

    “And because he did not get warned, he did not think about shutting everything down. HA HA, even Pence, who’s not worth anything but a prop looks a little upset about this, (perhaps he was in on it, one can never know anymore).

    It is assumed the photo is a photo op to let Nancy know they figured it out. This is earth shattering historic news, this was such a massive slam dunk by Trump that even some of his enemies are likely to cross over, if they did not know this was going on. Now we see why Trump kept the mission a secret, because a direct line to Baghdadi would have had him warned immediately and ensured he was around
    later to help prop up Nancy Pelosi.

    It’s pretty much game over with this, if we don’t see major action now there’s a real problem. I’d say Pelosi and the rest of them will be heading for Argentina and New Zealand soon, before the hammer falls.

    There’s a certain breaking point when it simply can’t be buried and you just gotta run. Comey has
    already announced it” – JS, http://82.221.129.208

    baggy never existed. he was a fictitious character.

    AL ZARQARWI,BIN LADEN, BAGGY ETC. the guy charged with 911
    is sitting in guantanamo 20 years later. who knows the poor clown picked for that part?

  • j. jaxson

    hat a bunch of bullshit.

  • j. jaxson

    what a bunch of bullshit.

    I do not believe this ‘narrative’ for a number of reasons. Firstly Al Baghdadi the leader of Isis was supposed to be hiding in Iblib which is an Al Nusra Front/ Al Qaeda region, and they are mortal enemies to Isis/Daesh. Hiding in the Lions Den, Yeah sure. He may as well have been hiding in the Kremlin.

    A statement by Russian Major General Igor Konashenkov said.”No airstrikes performed by US aircraft or aircraft belonging to the so called ’international coalition’ were detected on Saturday or during the following days,”
    This statement was made soon after the United States made their ‘story’. The Trump regime has not released ANY evidence whatsoever and expect people to believe his ‘Story’, Please. This is bordering on religious belief to buy a narrative without any evidence whatsoever. As Carl Sagan used to say Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence!

    For anybody crass enough to believe that this work of creative writhing is true, Al Baghdadi could not have picked a worse place to hide than in Iblib. ISIS only real enemies are the Russians, The Syrians, The Iranians, Hezbollah and Al Qaeda. For Al Baghdadi to get to Iblib he would have had to pass through areas controlled by at least Russia and Syria only to arrive in an area totally hostile to him as it is controlled by the Islamic Bandits Al Qaeda who are mortal enemies to The Islamic Bandits Daesh.

    We are also meant to believe that these terrorists have suicide vests lying around like normal people have their coats lying around or maybe we are meant to believe he wears his Suicide Vest the whole time like i wear my underwear. Trump also said the Al Baghdadi was “whimpering and crying and screaming all the way”. These are not the actions i associate with a hardened terrorist who has a Suicide Vest on and will soon detonate and soon to meet his 72 Virgins. He would be screaming “ALLAHU AKBAR! MUHAMMAD JIHAD.” and be impervious. The DNA test results been completed so soon is also ridiculous. Al Baghdadi must have been carrying his own biometric and DNA sample in his CIA Passport.

    “Baghdadi’s remains were buried at sea in accordance with the Law of Armed conflict within 24 hours of his death.” — U.S. Central Command. —Why was Muammar Gaddafi not also buried at sea ‘in accordance with the Law of Armed conflict’.

    This is a Crass Story for a Crass Audience.
