The general would also not confirm the president's description of al-Baghdadi "whimpering and crying" in his final moments, saying that while Trump may have spoken with USA commanders on the ground, he has not.

The informant, an undercover security adviser for Baghdadi, described a room-by-room layout of the terrorist leader's secret compound in Syria, a general in the Syrian Democratic Forces told NBC News.

The President said that the tunnel collapsed during the explosion.

"We help with the dogs that have PTSD, we have a program for that", he said.

"Our intelligence source was involved in sending coordinates, directing the airdrop, participating in and making the operation a success until the last minute", Polat Can said.

"Al-Baghdadi changed his places of residence very often", he said on Twitter.

Mr Can added that the SDF had been working with the Central Intelligence Agency to track Baghdadi since 15 May, and had discovered that he was hiding in Idlib province, where the raid took place.

Milley indicated it wouldn't have been hard to carry out the mission without troops on the ground.

And an unnamed United States military dog became a unlikely hero of the raid, incurring injuries as it chased Baghdadi down a dead-end tunnel underneath his northwestern Syria hideout before he blew himself and three children up with a suicide vest.

Wolf Blitzer asked if he gives Trump credit too. "These dogs are a special breed of courageous", he said.

They combined facial recognition technology and a smaller DNA reader that troops can use aboard their helicopters to obtain the results, according to the Daily Beast.

As for Conan, she suffered slight wounds, but is "fully recovering", said the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Mark Milley on Monday.

"The disposal of his remains has been done, is complete and was handled appropriately", he added, saying it was handled "in accordance with the law of armed conflict".

An anonymous official told the Reuters news agency that Baghdadi had been given religious rites according to the Islamic custom and buried at sea. In 2011, a dog named Cairo took part in the raid that led to Osama bin Laden's death.
