The Pentagon released footage, Wednesday, October 30, of the U.S. Special Forces operation, that led to the death of Islamic State group chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Among the images released by the Defense Department was grainy black-and-white footage of U.S. troops approaching on foot the high-walled compound in northwestern Syria where Baghdadi was holed up. The Pentagon also released video of airstrikes on a group of unknown fighters on the ground who opened fire on the helicopters that ferried U.S. forces in for the assault on Baghdadi's compound in Syria's Idlib province. Before and after pictures of the isolated compound were also released. The compound was razed by U.S. munitions after the raid, leaving it looking like "a parking lot with large potholes," said Marine Corps General Kenneth McKenzie, commander of US Central Command.
