Al-Baghdadi since 2014 when he declared an Islamic ‘Caliphate’ he has been one of the most wanted terrorists in the world. During his reign of terror he influenced jihadists to commit terroristic acts that were of a smaller scale making it more default for them to be captured by law enforcement.
One of the largest attacks was the bombing of the Manchester Arena which took the lives of 23 people. CNN reported that 140 terrorist attacks have occurred in 29 countries not including Syria or Iraq, at least 2,043 have been killed during these attacks.
Thanks to American forces the world no longer has to worry about ISIS terrorizing them any longer.
