ISIS Baghdadi

Ankara received “a lot of information” about the “inner workings” of the Daesh* terrorist group from the “first wife” of the group’s late leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, AFP reported, citing an anonymous Turkish official. According to the source, the wife, whose real name is Asma Fawzi Muhammad Al-Qubaysi, was captured around a year ago in the province of Hatay, near the Syrian border.

“We discovered [her] real identity pretty quickly. At that point, she volunteered a lot of information about Baghdadi and [Daesh]. We were able to confirm a lot of things that we already knew. We also obtained new information that led to a series of arrests elsewhere”, the source told AFP.

Along with al-Baghdadi’s wife, Turkey reportedly captured the former Daesh* leader’s daughter, who identified herself as Leila Jabeer.

Capture of Late al-Baghdadi’s Relatives

Following the demise of al-Baghdadi, who was killed as a result of a raid conducted by US forces at the end of October, Turkey announced capturing some of his relatives, namely his older sister, 65-year-old Rasmiya Awad, as well as her husband, daughter-in-law, and five children in the Syrian town of Azaz, north of Aleppo. Awad reportedly also provided Ankara with intelligence on Daesh’s* inner workings.

On 7 October, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan revealed that the total number of people close to al-Baghdadi captured by Turkey had risen to 13. He also confirmed that al-Baghdadi’s wife was arrested 1-1.5 years ago, but that Turkey had opted not to “make a big fuss about it”.

US President Donald Trump announced that Daesh* leader al-Baghdadi was slain on 27 October, adding that he killed himself after detonating a suicide vest. POTUS claimed that due to his body being mutilated by the blast, he was identified via a DNA test on the spot. His remains were buried at sea within 24 hours of his death and his raided hideout was levelled by an airstrike.

Daesh* later confirmed the death of al-Baghdadi and named Abi Ibrahim al-Hashemi al-Qurashi as their new leader.

ABAB wasn’t the real Daesh leader. The real one is still alive and kicking, he’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan and he’s trying to cover up his crimes! ABAB was living just 5km from Turkish border… And BTW, who cares for his relatives? Do we care if Amine Erdogan wears a Hermes handbag worth 6 months of her husband’s salary?
