Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the most wanted by the world countries was killed in a hunt conducted by the United States Army forces in Syria on 26th Oct 2019 night.
It was almost a year for the US troops in Syria that were haunting for this richest terrorist in the world. He was not only the richest but also the most cruel and dangerous terrorist.
Born in Iraq in the year 1959, Baghdadi came into picture during the invasion on Iraq by the United States in 2003.

He shot videos as how the ISIS would kill people and tele-casted them. The killings were so cruel that the United Nations and the European union had declared him as the most wanted terrorist and also declared an award of $25 million in 2017.
Coming to the US point of killing Baghdadi is mainly because of killing an US reporter by the Baghdadi group members. He was killed so brutally and the same has been shot video and was tele-casted. From that day, the US troops were searching for him.
It was a kind of challenge made by the ISIS chief for the US to catch him. He publicly declared that his main target was the US after the death of Al-Quaeda leader Osama Bin Laden.

Just a day after the chief’s death, IS lost its official spokesperson too in a battle against the Kurdish armed forces in Syria.
