According to Newsweek the United States military has conducted a special operations raid targeting one of its most high-value targets, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State militant group (ISIS), Newsweek has learned.
Syrian journalist Mohamad Rasheed posted several videos tonight of air raids in northern Syria.
This explains President Trump’s tweet an hour ago.
Something very big has just happened!

Josh Rogin reported this an hour ago…
This seems to relate to the raid in northern Idlib, Syria where U.S. led coalition forces were pursuing a high value terrorist target. No confirmation yet, some chatter it could be Baghdadi. https://t.co/I8aCl3oG5W
