Iran ICT Min says Trump's surprise reaction to killing of ISIS leader a sham

Tehran, Oct 27, IRNA - Iran Minister of Communications and Information Technology Mohammad Javad Azari-Jahromi in a message described the US president's surprise over killing the Daesh (ISIS) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as a sham.

"Not a big deal! You just killed your creature," Jahromi wrote on his Twitter account in reaction to US President Donald Trump who had earlier said: "Something very big has just happened!"

“Last night the United States brought the world’s Number One terrorist leader to justice,” Trump claimed earlier in a televised announcement.

 “He was a sick and depraved man, and now he’s gone," he added.

According to Washington Post, Trump described what he called a “dangerous and daring” nighttime operation by US "Special Operations forces in northwestern Syria, which involved firefights and culminated in what he said was a retreat by Baghdadi into a tunnel," he noted.

"There, Baghdadi detonated an explosive vest, killing himself and three of the six children he was believed to have," Western media reported.
