As always, victory has a hundred fathers and defeat is an orphan.

Mazloum Kobani Abdi, the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), claimed in an interview with Fox News that the SDF had provided the United States with an intelligence on the location of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi ahead of the US raid to eliminate him.

The SDF allgedly got the precise location of Baghdadi and details of the compound in the village of Barisha where he was staying from a source inside ISIS.

The decision to eliminate Baghdadi was first made “a month ago,” said Can, “but the US withdrawal and the Turkish invasion made us halt the operations.”

Additionally, Polat Can, a senior advisor to the SDF, the decision to eliminate Baghdadi was first made “a month ago,” but “the US withdrawal and the Turkish invasion made us halt the operations.”

From comments by SDF sources, it appears that the SDF was the key force behind the US operation against the ISIS leader. 

Earlier, Iraqi media claimed that it was the Iraqi intelligence that provided Washington with data needed to track and kill al-Baghdadi.

Soon, it may appear that the key role was played by France, the UK or even by Ukraine that provided President Donald Trump personally with the most preceise data about the location of the ISIS leader ahead of the raid. Meanwhile, the international audience is still waiting when Washington will release photos or videos that confirm the death of al-Baghdadi.
