President Donald Trump is expected to deliver a “major statement” Sunday, the White House announced late Saturday.
Citing a senior US defense official and a “source with knowledge,” CNN reported that the U.S. military targeted Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in a raid in northwest Syria on Saturday. Al-Baghdadi is believed to have been killed in the raid, although confirmation is still pending, the sources said.
The New York Times, Associated Press and other media reported the news of the raid and that al-Baghdadi was believed to have been killed, citing sources.
