In the wake after the military raid that led to the death of notorious ISIS chief, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, all eyes were on Conan. Conan is a military working dog (K-9) that was wounded while tracking down the head of the so-called Islamic State. The Delta Force’s K-9 sustained minor injuries and is already back on duty.
Probably, the most famous K-9 service dog these days was unleashed on Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in the final approach, forcing him to retreat to the tunnels and blow himself up at the end of a dark dead-end tunnel in Syria’s Idlib province.
Conan, a Belgian Malinois dog, was credited for his role in the operation directly by President Donald Trump, who tweeted his photo without revealing the dog’s name in a first manner.
“We have declassified a picture of the wonderful dog (name not declassified) that did such a GREAT JOB in capturing and killing the Leader of ISIS [Islamic State], Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi!” Trump tweeted on Monday.
The dog became famous overnight for his role in the hunt for the most wanted terrorist in the world at that time.
“The K-9, the military working dog, performed a tremendous service, as they all do in a variety of situations. It is slightly wounded and fully recovering,” chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley said on Monday.
