7:50 pm
board an air strike took place in the area and as a result of the operation many were killed it's also likely that someone was transported away during the operation. some dead bodies are still laying here in are being recovered from the site along with debris what's still unclear is whether baghdadi was actually killed in the u.s. operation and it wouldn't be the 1st time his death has been falsely reported we are awaiting official confirmation that's expected in about 3 hours time 1300 g.m.t. when the u.s. president is scheduled to give a news conference well before any u.s. media reports came out there he tweeted this just the one line something very big has just happened let's start with this from osama bin jervy is included come on the turkish syrian border in the last few hours we've heard more details emerge from what happened in the aftermath of this bombing of this raid or rather the location where this compound was has been taken out reportedly by fighter jets this
7:51 pm
is an area west of province which is a countryside sparsely populated area where i will buckle but he was allegedly located in that compound reports coming in from u.s. officials the department of defense officials have been telling us media that it was a raid which was carried out in the early hours of the morning very special operation forces raided this compound there was a brief exchange of fire i would look at it but glad he and his family was present reportedly and the 2 of his wives as well as baghdad he blew themselves up they have after this incident they have taken over the control of this area they made sure that all of the evidence that was there which would be different that evidence d.n.a. samples and biometrics have been taken and that the compound itself has been destroyed but as you mentioned this is not the 1st time that we are hearing reports although it is the 1st time that we are hearing such detailed reports and multiple
7:52 pm
sources telling us media from the department of defense that it is in fact they believe look at all but died he has been killed. so just who is this man abu bakar al baghdadi is a religious scholar from the city of samarra just north of baghdad a veteran of the sunni insurgency against american troops during the u.s. occupation of iraq he was a prisoner in the u.s. run jails at abu ghraib and camp booka and in 2010 he became the leader of al qaeda in iraq that later split from the main al qaeda that changed its name to eisele islamic state of iraq and the levant that was 2014 that same year baghdad he announced the creation of a so-called caliphate and within 12 months i still fight has captured large parts of iraq and syria controlling an area the size of the u.k. with more than 40005 says its attacks there and overseas prompted the formation of a u.s. led coalition which forced its fighters to retreat from their strongholds in 2017
7:53 pm
and 18 most of that territory has been retaken but i still continues to carry out attacks let's talk to natasha the name in baghdad now just bring us up to date if you wouldn't argue with what we know so far in lieu of any official announcement from the americans just yet. code be hard to find an iraqi family who has not been impacted by daddy's eisel whether they were displaced they lost a loved one were injured raped or simply living in fear iraqis are going to be living with the legacy of baghdadi and his eisel for at least a generation now just as with osama bin laden and there's no reason to believe that if in fact baghdadi has been killed that eisel will dissolve. eisel continues to launch attacks here in iraq it's believed that there are sleeper cells throughout the country i spoke with a top general with the u.s.
7:54 pm
led coalition to defeat eisel here in iraq over the summer and he says that eisel despite its weakened state has already pivoted and adapted into a nimble insurgency and it is already resurging here in iraq and syria we've spoken to several analysts today and it can't be disputed they're saying that again if baghdadi is in fact dead it will have an impact a big one on iraq and the region one says that perhaps eisel by scramble for a bit as it appoints a new leader and that person tries to get their bearings eisel is already in a weakened state but it's definitely believe that the group will likely group and be in a position to launch attacks we spoke to another analysts who believes there is a possibility that i saw may join forces with the armed groups again another analyst is saying he is concerned that i still will in fact launch quote revenge
7:55 pm
attacks here in iraq again to a vengeance a possible death of baghdadi this is coming as there is a big domestic crisis in iraq we've been covering anti-government protests for the last 3 days that have killed more than 200 people. the government according to one analyst will likely try to paint this as a victory to try to diffuse tension among protesters the iraqi government is already highlighting its historic intelligence gathering and cooperation with the u.s. military natasha going to in baghdad thank you for that update we've also been speaking to another of our correspondents on the holder with more on how he rose to become the leader of one of the world's most feared armed groups. it was july 2014 when the world got a glimpse of the man best known as abu bakar a bucket that he and iraqi whose real name is abraham
7:56 pm
a white ibrahim. he walked out of the shadows to the clear in islam extend in iraq and the levant from the great mosque in the iraqi city of mosul he led friday prayers after naming himself caliph or religious leader it was a show of power by an armed group which took over much of iraq's sunni heartland after the iraqi army all but collapsed 5 years later it was back daddy's state that collapsed i saw once controlled 88000 square kilometers of territory stretching from western syria to eastern iraq it lost its last stronghold in syria in march this year weeks after that that he made his 1st appearance in 5 years putting to rest many unconfirmed reports of his death in a video the ice a leader wanted to show he was still in charge and along with his group survived the territorial defeat backed that he was behind the group's creation an expansion i solo originated in al qaida in iraq back then he became its leader in 2010 he
7:57 pm
then capitalized on the unrest in neighboring syria exploiting the security vacuum it started to capture territory and changed its name to islamic state in iraq in the levant before falling out with al qaida leader ayman al-zawahiri. i so now the challenge is al qaida not only in syria and iraq but for the leadership of what it calls the global jihad this struggle but that he was once a prisoner in a u.s. run jail in iraq he is believed to have been born near the iraqi city of samarra in 1971 and said to have a ph d. in islamic studies from an iraqi university giving him religious credentials it isn't known what will baghdad he played in recruiting arab in foreign fighters or in orchestrating attacks abroad there have been questions about his grip on power and reports of dissent within the group's leadership but the man who declared
7:58 pm
himself caliph the would be successor of the prophet managed to elude death and capture for years and even though i still state in syria and iraq crumbled under his rule the group's goals are not defined by borders or one man its appeal comes from harnessing the grievances of some new muslims in iraq syria and across the world senator. with us again now in kabul on the director of policy analysis of the arab center for research and policy studies let's just start with well it is unconfirmed at this stage we must point out but if. baghdad is dead how much of a blow is that i saw as an actual group you were distinguishing between the group and the ideology as a group still i think. it's going to be a major blow actually to the group given how. the idea was actually don't forget that he's he seemed to be the 1st. who were the clear himself from an already
7:59 pm
mosque in morse in 2014 maybe for the 1st time says the collapse of the ottoman empire says the last holy father muslim holy for so he must be seen as a very charismatic leader of the group but on the other hand as you said it's about ideology it's about the circumstances which have led to. emergence of ice in the 1st place you not mean. that eyes of fire still has actually originated mainly from exclusion marginalization very poor economy and social conditions and mainly the execution of the sunni in syria and in iraq don't forget that it was an maliki nouri al maliki the prime minister of former prime minister of iraq actually his policies which contributed to the rise of ice in the 1st place and then it came through to syria and the blood but of syria actually also gave a lot of. money support for the for the group which at the end of the day i mean
8:00 pm
led to its allies and taking so much of territories in syria and in iraq and is this conditions actually change i don't see the end of. as an ideology although we have seen the end of feisal as a territorial entity as a group does it have a sort of this is an odd way to put it but a succession plan do you think i use the example before of when bin laden was killed and we knew that his successor and al qaeda was the wadi in the case of eisel well i still is having actually assured our consul which means people who are we're close but it close to i still a very senior of the senior ranking. figures within isis so i don't think that. they will find it difficult to find a policeman to albuquerque daily although i don't see somebody who is as charismatic as a buckler but that the to be a leader of this of this will so we might see it actually also
8:01 pm
a fragmentation of feisal itself because we have seen we have seen some of that i think with with other groups actually who have lost their to their leader so we might.
