ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi killed in air strike in Syria

The leader of ISIS Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been killed in an air strike in Syria, according to unverified reports in Syrian state media, as reported by Mirror on Sunday.

The Claims suggest ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in an air strike on Saturday.

Heavy artillery was dropped across ISIS' stronghold of Raqqa throughout the day, with footage online posted by ISIS news agency Amaq revealing the devastation it caused.

ISIS leader has a 20 million Euros bounty on his head as he inspired suicide attacks across Europe. There have been previous reports of al-Baghdadi's death, which turned out to be untrue.

Recent evidence unearthed for a documentary shows Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi escaped capture in Iraq by just minutes back in 2013, before unleashing his army of terrorists on the world.

As Iraqi forces besiege al-Baghdadi’s former stronghold in Mosul, the so-called caliphate he declared in the city’s main mosque back in 2014 is crumbling apart.

This comes as the Iraqi forces have been battling the terror group of ISIS in the right bank of the city since February 19th with the aid of the US-led coalition after freeing the eastern bank of the war-shattered city.
