ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed when he detonated a suicide vest as US Army Special Ops forces closed in on his hideout in northwestern Syria.

Between 50 and 70 members of the US Army Delta Force and Rangers flew in on six helicopters and surrounded al-Baghdadi during the overnight raid in Syria’s Idlib province, an official source told Fox News.

Details about the raid are still emerging as officials conduct biometric tests on evidence collected from the site.

An unverified video reportedly showed the moment al-Baghdadi was killed, along with his three children.

President Donald Trump held a morning press conference on Sunday and confirmed that al-Baghdadi ‘died like a dog’ in the extended firefight with US forces that had been searching for the founding Islamic State member for three years.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper said there were two minor injuries to US soldiers after Trump indicated that a US K-9 was injured.
