News reports have said the leadership of the murderous jihadist group ISIS has been heavy hit by a U.S.-led airstrike in western Iraq.
According to one Middle Eastern media, ISIS’s leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been badly injured.
Al Arabiya News Channel reported that an airstrike had “critically wounded” Baghdadi in the western Iraqi border town of al-Qaim according to tribal sources.
There are mixed reports by various other media but the U.S. has said its air-power hit a convoy of 10 armed trucks carrying high level ISIS leaders in another location near Mosul. A U.S. defense official could not confirm whether Baghdadi was present in that airstrike reported AFP.
The U.S. State Department has a $10 million reward for information on Baghdadi, reports news.com.
Twitter accounts used by ISIS members say their leader is alive and well.
Time will tell what Baghdadi’s fate will be.
