President Donald Trump has commended the 'wonderful dog' that took part in the raid against ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Posting the picture to his 66 million Twitter followers and pinning it to the top of his account, Trump wrote:

During a press conference at the White House on Sunday, Trump gave some insight into the dog's role as he explained that Baghdadi 'reached the end of the tunnel, as our dogs chased him down,' adding: "He ignited his vest, killing himself and the three children."

Many people have responded, to show their appreciation for the dog's efforts. One said: "True hero, thank you for your service."

Representative for Texas, Jodey Arrington wrote: "This weekend, man's best friend was also freedom's best friend. Wishing a speedy recovery to our favorite four-legged fighter who served our country alongside the brave Special Ops team that took down ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi."

The raid that led to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi's death took place in north-west Syria with President Trump explaining that the United States brought the 'world's greatest terrorist leader to justice', adding 'Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead'.

Trump went on to explain that the Islamic State leader died 'whimpering and crying and screaming' after he ran towards the dead-end tunnel.

He added: "The thug who tried so hard to intimidate others spent his last moments in utter fear, in total panic and dread, terrified of the American forces bearing down on him."

It has been reported that many of Baghdadi's team were killed, but the exact number is yet to be confirmed. The US lost no personnel in the operation.

Applauding the troops, Trump said: "This raid was impeccable and could only have taken place with the acknowledgement and help of certain other nations and people.

"I want to thank the nations of Russia, Turkey, Syria and Iraq and I also want to thank the Syrian kurds for certain support they were able to give us."
