"We all know that".

Moscow has criticised the United States' decision to send troops into eastern Syria to protect the oil fields, calling it "international state banditry".

This isn't the first time American armed forces have relied on a dog for backup in operations targeting terrorists.

The president praised U.S. Special Operations forces for executing "a risky and daring nighttime raid into northwestern Syria to accomplish this mission".

In Syria, recruitment to groups such as Islamic State is encouraged by the killing of Sunnis by Syrian government forces backed by Iran and Russian Federation. "But we had no soldier injured".

"But they love doing what they're doing".

Bin Laden was a recurrent theme in Mr Trump's remarks. "And we watched it so clearly", he said, referring to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Eleven children were removed, uninjured.

A photo taken on October 27, 2019, shows Syrian locals near a destroyed truck at the spot where Abu Hassan al-Muhajir, the Islamic State group's spokesman, was reportedly killed in a raid in the northern Syrian village of Ayn al-Bayda, near Jarablus. According to the POTUS, Baghdadi triggered his suicide vest with 3 children around him, after which the tunnel he was in caved in.

"We hope that the culture of al-Baghdadi's and Daesh is killed forever".

The hero dog - name still a mystery - was unveiled in a tweet, reading: "We have declassified a picture of the wonderful dog (name not declassified) that did such a GREAT JOB in capturing and killing the Leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi!"

Al-Baghdadi's identity was confirmed by a DNA test conducted on-site, Trump had said. It took about 15 minutes.

Trump said his administration has altogether destroyed the caliphate 100 per cent. "This is the worst ever", Trump said.

Islamic State sleeper cells could launch revenge attacks in the West following the death of its shadowy leader, a terror analyst has warned. "We may ... And we may take certain parts of it and release it, yes".

Trump, during his 48-minute appearance in the White House Diplomatic Room on Sunday, told reporters that US forces suffered no casualties or injuries in the raid on Baghdadi's complex in northwest Syria, but disclosed that the dog was injured.

Al-Baghdadi was a "nasty and brutal loner" and he had been the right person to lead IS during the period of so-called caliphate building, Barton said.

He described the footage as "something really awesome to see" and "as though you were watching a movie". "Both her and other relatives have confirmed that he died in 2017".

Among the front runners are Abu Abdullah al-Jizrawi, a Saudi, and Abdullah Qaradash, an Iraqi and one of Baghdadi's right-hand men, also a former army officer under Saddam Hussein.

Appearing on ABC's "This Week", Esper said he wasn't sure where Trump got "whimpering" from, either. So are any other details, including the breed.

"They will delay announcing who the new leadership is because it only makes their security more of a problem".

According to the New York Times, the Situation Room had live overhead surveillance footage of the operation.

The IS group claimed responsibility for three suicide bombings in Brussels on March 22, 2016, that killed 32 people at its airport and in a metro station. "We may", Trump told reporters before flying to Chicago.

Vice-President Mike Pence told CBS Mr Trump approved the operation on Saturday morning after receiving "actionable intelligence".

Mr Trump later revealed he had teased the announcement as soon as American forces landed safely in a third country.
