Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called the death of the outlawed ISIS chief Abu-Bakr Al-Baghdadi a turning point in the fight against terrorism.
According to the details, Turkish president said in a tweet that his country will continue its struggle to end terrorism in the future.
Turkey has paid a heavy price for fighting against ISIS and other terrorist organizations, he said.
It should be noted that Turkish and US forces exchanged information before the operation against Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, according to a statement issued by Turkish Defense Ministry.
Remember that President Donald Trump on Sunday said that IS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi was killed in a raid by US Special Forces deep in northwest Syria.
Trump told the nation in a televised address from the White House that US forces killed Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi.
“He ignited his vest, killing himself,” Trump said.
News of the raid, however, drew praise from several world leaders, coupled with caution that the IS threat may not be fully vanquished.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Twitter that it was “a turning point in our joint fight against terrorism.”
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called the raid “an important moment in our fight against terror” but cautioned that the fight was “not yet over.”
