The death of Al Baghdadi, announced by Trump, a hard blow to jihadism

The death of the jihadist leader of the Islamic State (ISIS), Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, during a US operation in Syria is a serious blow to that terrorist group, but not its end, in the opinion of world political leaders.

In this way, both politicians and international organizations tone down and don’t claim victory, after Al Baghdadi was immolated by detonating an explosive vest in a tunnel when he was surrounded in the small town of Barisha, in the northern Syrian province of Idlib.

“The death of Al Baghdadi is a hard blow against the Islamic State, but it is only one stage. The fight continues with our partners in the international coalition so that the terrorist organization is finally defeated ”, said French President Emmanuel Macron on the Twitter social network, adding that this is the “priority” of France in the area.

In the same vein, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson considered: “The death of Al Baghdadi is an important moment is our fight against terror, but the battle against the evil of Daesh (Arabic acronym for the Islamic State) is not yet over. ”

The United Kingdom, he added on Twitter, will work with its coalition partners “to end the murderous, barbaric activities of Daesh once and for all.”

A “turning point”

For his part, the president of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, said that the death of Al Baghdadi marks a “turning point in our joint fight against terrorism” and stressed that Ankara “will continue to support anti-terrorism efforts- as it has done in the past”.

In a second message on the social network, Erdogan reiterated his position that Kurdish armed militias in Syria, the YPG and its sister organization in Turkey, the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), are just as dangerous as the Islamic State.

“Having paid the dearest price in the fight against Daesh, PKK/YPG, and other terrorist organizations, Turkey welcomes this development,” Erdogan wrote and added: “I am confident that a decisive struggle against terrorism, in line with the spirit of alliance, will bring peace to all of humanity.”

The acting Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, today congratulated the US president, Donald Trump, for the operation against Al Baghdadi, which he considered reflects the shared determination between the two countries, and of all the “free states”, of “fighting against organizations and terrorist states”.

“This achievement is an important milestone, but the campaign (against IS) continues,” he said.

A “significant step” in the fight against international terrorism

Along the same lines, NATO, which collaborates with the international coalition that heads the US against the Islamic State and train the security forces of Iraq to help them not to regain territory in the country, said it is a “significant step” in efforts against international terrorism.

The Atlantic Alliance, according to its secretary general, Jens Stoltenberg, “remains committed to the fight against our common enemy, the Islamic State.”
Trump was who announced on Sunday the death of Al Baghdadi, considered the number one terrorist in the world and Washington’s objective since announcing in 2014 the self-proclaimed caliphate of the Islamic State in large areas of Syria and Iraq. (October 28, 2019, EFE/Practica Español)
