The ISIS leader is believed to be dead, those officials told Aour news service.

One official said that al-Baghdadi is believed to have detonated a suicide vest he was wearing as a U.S. special mission unit carried out a ground raid in Idlib. The building containing al-Baghdadi was leveled by U.S. operators, the official said.

U.S. officials said they’re awaiting final confirmation of his death through fingerprinting or other biometric methods.

The White House declined to comment, saying the president was planning to deliver remarks at 9 a.m. EDT Sunday. No details were provided on what would be included in President Donald Trump’s remarks.

The Pentagon didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
