ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi killed by U.S.-led artillery strike, Syrian media claims


baghdadiIslamic State (ISIS) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was reported by Syrian media to have been killed on June 10 in a U.S.-lead coalition artillery strike.

Syrian state television said the terror group’s leader, the world’s most wanted terrorist, was killed in an artillery strike on the group’s headquarters in Raqqa. No confirmation of Baghdadi’s death has been issued by ISIS.

News of Baghdadi’s reported demise was met with widespread skepticism since similar reports have been proven false in the past, according to media reports . On at least two occasions over the last year, the ISIS leader was reportedly killed, only to show a sign of life in the form of a video or voice recording.

Reports that Baghdadi had been killed emerged as Iraqi forces claimed that his deputy, Ayad al-Jumaili, had been killed in an airstrike near Iraq’s border with Syria.

According to AFP, citing official Iraqi documents, Baghdadi was born in Samarra in 1971. He later joined the Iraqi insurgency that arose after America’s invasion of the Middle Eastern country in 2003. Late last year, the U.S. announced it had increased its reward offer for Baghdadi’s head to $25 million.

The report of Baghdadi’s death comes amid a military push by U.S.-backed Syrian forces into Raqqa, the jihadist group’s last remaining stronghold in the region. The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a group of Kurdish and Arab militias supported by a U.S.-led coalition, began to attack Raqqa on June 6 after a months-long campaign to cut it off.

The U.S.-led coalition estimates that Raqqa is defended by 3,000 to 4,000 jihadists.

    I hope and pray that this news is true that Lucifer is dead but many cousins still looming everywhere. Let’s hope we get rid of these deadly cancer that was brought on by the rich gulfies and Iran and Syria.

      1. The US killed him many times already. He doesn’t seem to die. This might be it – to be determined.

          конечно. официальной столицей ИГИЛ стала москва “Moscow became official ISIS capital”

          1. Has Mossad decided on who’s going to replace al-Baghdadi yet? A name like Osmanov has a nice ring to it.

          2. Want you to be isisians leader? they are hating Israel like you

          3. No, thanks.

            If they hate Israel, why did they apologize to Israel?

            Ex-defense minister says IS ‘apologized’ to Israel for November clash

            Let me guess: I take it out of context.

          5. Diversion much? But alright:

            Who’s bombing the Muslims’ countries for decades?

            Who’s facilitating the Muslims’ migration to Europe?

          6. Big main enemy of Muslims are only Muslims, like Russians for Russians, Venezuelians for Venezuelians, Like OmegaHell for Omega. May be diversion is what you are doing, information is your enemy

          7. (laughing)

            You inbred, maniac you.

          8. check better yourself, hateful idiot

          9. You’re hilarious. You write information is my enemy but when I present you with information, you go ballistic.

          10. You are corrupting information because your bad motivation
            “I corrupt information – if I ignore it (cleverness-sillyness), privatize (chauvinism), sell (impudence), damage, destroy (vandalism), distort (lie), litter (piggishness), impose (violence, terrorism)”

          11. You reject all valid, factual information that points out to Israel as “mental masturbation”. Quit being a hypocrite.

          12. “valid”, “factual” information is your, characteristically, demagogy. You are not, can not understand, what is information, lol try to google it, may be will find my book about information. This is metaphor or abstraction. “Valid” or “factual” information is your “wet water”, nonsense

          13. So far, I have yet to see you contradict anything with actual, factual information.

          14. Can you understand English, idiot? What is it wet water?

          15. Read the crap you write before asking if others understand English.

            I notice a repetitive change in syntax in your comments. Intentional or Freudian slip?

          16. i answered about Aramaic ܐܪܡܝܐ‎ It was Imperial for Hebrews like English on yalibnan here
            Wet water (“valid”, “factual” information) is your crap, idiot

          17. You answered nothing. You repeated a same answer that has nothing to do with my question.

          18. залезь к себе в нору, идиот

          19. Google detects Russian (what a coincidence) and translates to: “Climb into your hole, idiot”.

            I take it you can’t answer. Why waste time? Say you don’t know.

          20. I can not be at your level, you are hateful vandal mostly

          21. You insult and I am the vandal. Oy vey iz mir!

          22. You are vandal because you are corrupting information. Idiot is not insult, ask Hind. By the way, where is she?

          23. I agree: idiot is a compliment in your case.

            Hind commented four hours ago. Do you miss her beating you?

          24. What is this, insulting?

            Don’t wary, Hind (hend) is very active,
            she would become unemployed if she stopped spreading hatred against Jews, Israelis,
            Americans and others who did not buy her conspiracy theories.

            All means are used,
            as this unexpected move….

            Didn’t you noticed that she is VERY active on Twitter?

  3. What invention of Islam will be next after ISIS?
