Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made the following remarks today, on the death of Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS:
“I want to congratulate President Trump on the impressive achievement, an operation that led to the death of the Daash leader Al Baghdadi. This reflects the united resolve of the free countries led by the United States to fight the forces of terror, the terror organizations and the terrorist states. This is an important milestone, but it’s part of a longer battle which me must win.”

Since 2016, al-Baghdadi has been marked with a $25 million bounty by the U.S. State Department.
Al-Baghdadi has led ISIS for the past five years, during which time there have been multiple announcements of the terrorist leader being killed or injured.
Al-Baghdadi presided over the extremist Islamic organization during a period in which it publicized gruesome and explicit videos of beheadings and immolations of the enemies of what they dubbed the “Islamic caliphate.”
Disgraceful Leftwing Media Reporting
As former NY Assemblyman Dov Hikind posted today:
“This headline by WaPo exemplifies everything that’s wrong with the loony far-Left media!”
“Instead of calling al-Baghdadi what he is, a terrorist, rapist, pillager, murderer, he’s been rendered an “austere religious scholar”!!”
“And then they wonder why they’re called “fake news”?!”
