Syria conflict:Trump declares ‘big success,’ lifts sanctions on Turkey

Citing a senior US defense official,CNN reportedthat the US military targeted Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in a raid in northwest Syria on Saturday. Trump approved the mission nearly a week before it took place,Newsweek reported.

In April, the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, released a video purportedly showing Baghdadi for thefirst time in nearly five years. According to the Associated Press, he presided over the Islamic State’s ascendancy as it cultivated a reputation for beheadings and attracted hundreds of thousands of followers to a sprawling and self-styled caliphate in Iraq and Syria.

Baghdadi remained among the few ISIS commanders still at large despite multiple claims in recent years about his death and even as his so-called caliphate dramatically shrank, with many supporters who joined the cause either imprisoned or jailed.

Saturday’s strike came amid concerns that a recent American pullback from northeastern Syria could infuse new strength into the militant group, which had lost vast stretches of territory it had once controlled.
