ISIS Al-Baghdadi killed in US coalition air strike?


Rome: Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the head of the Islamic State (ISIS) militant group, has been killed in an air strike in Syria by the US-led coalition, reports said on Monday.

Iranian state media and pro-government Turkish daily Yenis Safak cited IS-affiliated Arabic news agency al-Amaq as saying that IS’s ‘Caliph’ Baghdadi died in an air strike on Raqqa in northern Syria on Sunday.

“Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been killed by coalition airstrikes on Raqqa on the fifth day of Ramadan,” said the statement.

The coalition did not immediately comment on the report.

Earlier on Monday, Iraqi TV channel ‘Al-Sumaria’ said that Baghadi had been wounded on Sunday in a coalition air strike on a location 65 kilometers west of the IS-held city of Mosul.

US TV network CNN on Monday cited US defense officials as saying they received credible intelligence that Baghdadi, who has a USD 25 million bounty on his head, has moved around within the past six months and had traveled to Mosul.
