The Daily Mail reported:
Iraq’s Air Force claim to have hit a military convoy carrying the leader of Islamic State Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in Iraq.
A military statement claimed the strike had taken place in the Iraqi province of Anbar but admitted it was unclear if al-Baghdadi had been killed.
It is thought Iraqi jets targeted the convoy as it was travelling for a meeting close to the Syrian border in Western Anbar today.
The location of the meeting was also targeted by the Iraqi Air Force, who claimed ‘many of the group’s leaders were killed and wounded’.
‘Iraqi air forces have bombed the convoy of the terrorist Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi while he was heading to Karabla to attend a meeting with Daesh commanders’, the statement read.
‘The location of the meeting was also bombed and many of the group’s leaders were killed and wounded.
