Pentagon released footage of US Forces targeting a compound near the village of Barisha, in Idlib Governorate, where leader of the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was allegedly hiding, Wednesday.
The footage from October 26 shows the US forces moving towards the compound, targeting gunmen on the ground which had allegedly opened fire on the forces. The US forces are also seen striking the compound and destroying it.
On October 27, US President Donald Trump announced that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi blew himself up with an explosive belt in a dead-end tunnel reportedly killing three children he was with, as he was fleeing from the US forces.
