US troops killed second top ISIS leader - Trump

US troops have killed a second top ISIS official, the likely successor to slain leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, President Trump said Tuesday.
“Just confirmed that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s number one replacement has been terminated by American troops,” Mr. Trump tweeted. “Most likely would have taken the top spot - Now he is also Dead!”

The death of Abu Hassan al-Muhajir, a spokesman for ISIS, is another major blow to the extremist group. He was killed in a separate operation, a joint raid between Kurdish-led and US forces in northern Syria.

Al-Baghdadi detonated a suicide vest as US special operations troops closed in on him at a compound in Syria last weekend.

Mr. Trump told a police chiefs’ convention on Monday that al-Baghdadi was “dead as a doornail.”
