Baghdadi raid: 'ye andar ki baat hai'

Oct 29, 2019 14:50 IST

Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who was killed in a US raid, was identified by his underpants which were stolen by an undercover source. The underwear was DNA tested to prove his identity before an operation by US forces to kill him, an advisor to the Syrian Democratic Forces said. Polat Can, a senior advisor to the Kurdish-led SDF, gave details on Twitter about how SDF intelligence work had helped locate Baghdadi.
