President Trump's abrupt decision to withdraw US troops from Syria disrupted the planning of the attack on ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdad, military officials warned.
Despite the fact that intelligence services were approaching a location for Baghdadi, the president ordered earlier this month to withdraw American troops from the volatile region of northern Syria, officials claimed.
Pentagon advisers warned the president of making major changes on the ground in Syria because neutralizing the militant leader was a top priority, the New York Times reports.

This withdrawal & # 39; complicated & # 39; The mission to capture Baghdadi and the robbery took place largely despite, and not because of, Mr. Trump's actions, US officials told the Times.
It meant that the US had to stay in contact with Russia and Turkey so that the helicopters of the special forces could fly over the air of northern Syria and focus on the hideout of the ISIS leader.
US operators were also forced to hurry the mission because they lost control of the airspace in the crucial area, sources said.
