If the data on the elimination of the leader of the Islamic State is confirmed, Trump has made a significant contribution to the fight against terrorists, Peskov said.
The Kremlin considers the Us’ contribution to the fight against international terrorism to be a serious contribution if the information about the elimination of the leader of the terrorist group “Islamic State” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is confirmed. This was announced on Monday, October 28, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said
If indeed, our military saw American planes in the zone and saw in the zone drones that could work there,” Peskov said.
According to him, “if this information is indeed confirmed about the elimination of al-Baghdadi, then, in general, we can speak about the serious contribution of the President of the United States of America in the fight against international terrorism.”
The Kremlin spokesman assured: “The news itself cannot cause a negative reaction of the Russian authorities.”
Recall, the day before, Trump announced the elimination of al-Baghdadi and other representatives of ISIS during a special operation in Syria’s Idlib. The U.S. military, he said, was not injured.
At the same time, the Islamic State has already appointed a new leader to replace the liquidated al-Baghdadi. According to media reports, al-Afari, a former Iraqi military officer who had long assumed the role of leader, was a former Iraqi military officer, while al-Baghdadi’s role was symbolic.
