WASHINGTON DC: Amid reports of killing of Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, US President Donald Trump on Saturday said that "something very big" has happened.
"Something very big has just happened!", Trump tweeted.

Russia Today has cited Newsweek as reporting that the terrorist was killed in a special operation raid in Syria's northwestern Idlib province, greenlighted by Trump about a week ago.
Meanwhile, Fox News has also quoted military sources saying that a "high-value ISIS target" believed to be the Islamic State leader has been killed by U.S.-led forces in Idlib, Syria.
