DAMASCUS, SYRIA (10:40 P.M.) – Moments ago, Iranian state media quoted Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei as saying Islamic State leader Abu Bakrh Al-Baghdadi was “definitely dead”.

A representative of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards backed up the statement, but Ali Shirazi did not wish to elaborate on the claim.

On June 17, the Syrian and Russian government also claimed Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi was killed by an airstrike in Syria. On the other hand, the Iraqi and US state departments said they had no knowledge of his death.

The secretive Islamic State leader has frequently been reported killed or wounded since he declared a caliphate to rule over all Muslims from a mosque in Mosul in 2014, after his fighters seized large areas of northern Iraq.

i’ll wait till Amaq confirms it. unless the group confirms it, i’m not going to believe that al-baghdadi, the world’s most dangerous criminal, is dead.

If he is dead and it was a Russian Airstrike, I hope the Russian Government will claim the $25,000,000 dollar reward from the US 🙂

I think that IS leader’s carcass would deserve this kind of display, to make everybody sure about his demise :
