US: Pentagon releases video of IS leader raid

(Washington) The US Defence Department has today released the first images and videos of the special forces raid that killed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi,the leader of the ISIS terror group, in Syria.

The death of Baghdadi was announced on Sunday by President Donald Trump, who claimed the ISIS leader whimpered like a dog, before taking his own life with an explosion in a tunnel dug within the compound. Special forces then picked through the rubble left behind by the collapsed tunnel to identify the terrorist's body.

In the videos, around a half dozen American troops can be seen approaching the compound, which is protected on the outside by walls that are blasted open. American officials say that six enemy fighters were killed during the special forces raid, while 11 children were safely removed from the house. Two children were reportedly killed during the operation.
No dogs were killed during the making of this video.
