WASHINGTON, Oct. 29 (EUROPE PRESS) –
The president of the United States, Donald Trump, confirmed Tuesday on Twitter that US forces have also killed the “probable” successor of Abu Bakr al Baghdadi at the head of the Islamic State terrorist group, although he has not clarified who he would be referring to.
The US government confirmed on Monday the death of Abú al Hassan al Muhajir, spokesman for the organization and indicated as a potential successor to Al Baghdadi, in an operation other than the one that ended the life of the terrorist leader in Idlib last Saturday.
The Syrian Democratic Forces had already advanced this second casualty on Sunday, in the framework of a joint operation in which US troops also participated.
“I have just been confirmed that the number one replacement of Abu Bakr al Baghdadi has been eliminated by US troops. Most likely, he would have taken over. Now he is dead too,” the president said on his Twitter account .
