Amid reports Saturday of U.S. military helicopters over Syria’s northwestern Idlib province, a senior Pentagon official familiar with the operation and Army official briefed on the matter told Newsweek that Baghdadi was the target of the top-secret operation in the last bastion of the country’s Islamist-dominated opposition, a faction that has clashed with ISIS in recent years. A U.S. Army official briefed on the results of the operation told Newsweek that Baghdadi was killed in the raid. And the Defense Department told the White House they have “high confidence” that the high-value target killed was Baghdadi, but further verification is pending.

Earlier tonight President Trump fired off a cryptic tweet hinting at major news coming, and this is likely it. Trump tweeted:

“Something very big has just happened!” He hasn’t yet followed up on this tweet and although this news has been dropped much of the world is still waiting in anticipation.
