Report: ISIS Leader Baghdadi Severely Injured in US Airstrike

A previous report that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in a US airstrike was not accurate.

Thousands of social media users distributed an unverified photo which claimed to show the body of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi after he was purportedly killed by US air strikes.

However, discovered that the photo of Baghdadi had been photoshopped from a previous photo of a dead terrorist.

But, now there are reports that Baghdadi was seriously injured and is being treated in the border region of Iraq-Syria.
Bas News reported:

The Islamic State (IS) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has not been killed as has been previously claimed. He is wounded and being treated in the border area of Iraq and Syria.

A few days ago, it was reported that al-Baghdadi had been killed by a U.S. airstrike near Mosul in Northern Iraq, an attack that left three other senior members of the militant group dead.

However, a source told Iraqi media that the IS leader and self-proclaimed Caliph has not been killed, but is badly injured as a result of the recent US airstrikes near the Tel Afer and Sinjar areas.

Baghdadi was last seen in a Mosul mosque leading Friday prayers in early July.
