Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday hailed the killing of Islamic State group chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, calling it a "turning point" in the fight against terrorism.
"The killing of Daesh's ringleader marks a turning point in our joint fight against terrorism," Erdogan said on Twitter, using another name for IS. His tweet came after Trump announced Baghdadi's death during a nighttime raid by US special forces deep in northwestern Syria.
