ISIS Leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi 'seriously wounded in air strike'

Wednesday, April 22, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- The leader of Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has been seriously wounded in an air strike in western Iraq, sources have told the Guardian.

A source in Iraq with connections to the terror group revealed that Baghdadi suffered serious injuries during an attack by the US-led coalition in March. The source said Baghdadi's wounds were at first life-threatening, but he has since made a slow recovery. He has not, however, resumed day-to-day control of the organisation.

Baghdadi's wounding led to urgent meetings of Isis leaders, who initially believed he would die and made plans to name a new leader.

The diplomat confirmed an air strike on a three-car convoy had taken place on that date between the village of Umm al-Rous and al-Qaraan. The attack targeted local Isis leaders and is believed to have killed three men. Officials did not know at the time that Baghdadi was in one of the cars. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/apr/21/isis-leader-abu-bakr-al-baghdadi-wounded-air-strike" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
