Halfway around the world, President Trump watched the roughly two-hour raid via live video as US special forces entered the lair and finished off him.

Trump said the US began receiving intelligence that Baghdadi was in Idlib about a month ago, including some `useful` information from the Kurds.

Idlib is the last stronghold of the opposition to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, mainly controlled by the rebel alliance fighting the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS) group.

The location of the house was raided.

US intelligence officials `determined` his exact location two weeks ago: a small compound outside the village of Barisha in Idlib, 5 km south of the Turkish border.

On October 26, Trump returned to the White House at about 4:30 p.m. Eastern US time (10:30 p.m. Syria time) after playing golf in Virginia.

After 5:00 p.m. Eastern time in the US (4:00 a.m. Hanoi time on October 27), 8 helicopters carrying Delta special forces took off from a location in the Middle East.

Delta Force is a special forces unit that focuses on counter-terrorism missions and is often deployed to capture high-value targets.

The helicopters flew for more than an hour over an area controlled by multiple countries, including Russian and Syrian forces.

`The flight in and out is very dangerous. There is a risk that our forces will encounter heavy fire,` Trump said.

Just before landing at the target compound, American forces came under fire.

After the helicopter landed, the special forces blew up the walls of the compound to create holes.

Baghdadi fled down the compound’s tunnel, taking his three small children with him.

Desperate to have no way out, Baghdadi detonated his suicide vest, ending the lives of himself and his three children, causing the tunnel to partially collapse.

Baghdadi’s body was `broken into many pieces by the explosion`, so US forces had to do DNA testing on site to confirm his identity.

The United States affirmed that it had definitely destroyed the supreme leader of IS, but there was no independent confirmation of Baghdadi’s death.

US forces stayed in the compound for about two more hours to confiscate very sensitive documents about IS, including the group’s future plans.

The rubble believed to be the hideout of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was razed on October 27.

National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien said Baghdadi’s body would be `disposed of properly`.

Bin Laden’s body was then washed and wrapped in a white cloth on the aircraft carrier Carl Vinson, then placed in a heavy bag to sink to the bottom of the sea.

Trump could not hide his joy.

He made the official announcement about the raid on October 27 in the Diplomatic Room of the White House, spending more than 45 minutes telling and answering questions about the raid.

By the evening of October 27, Trump’s re-election campaign was ready to turn the raid into a political victory.
