BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:40 A.M.) – The infamous leader of the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh), Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, is possibly hiding out in Libya after losing his so-called ‘caliphate’ in Syria and Iraq, The Daily Express said on Sunday.

According to the publication, the British Royal Air Force is currently searching for the terrorist leader throughout the North African nation.

The report said British fighter jets, along with aircraft operated by Italian and US militaries, were carrying out round-the-clock sorties in search of the ABB, the code name being used to identify Baghdadi as a target. It said anyone killing or capturing the Daesh leader would receive $25million (£19million) as a bounty on his head.

The RAF jets are being scrambled from Waddington in Lincolnshire, in eastern England, to collate signals and intelligence on individuals and groups who might support the 48-year-old Daesh leader.

The British authorities allege that they have some ‘reliable’ intelligence that the Daesh chief has escaped Baghouz in eastern Syria and moved on to Libya.

“It is reliable intel, but it needs to be verified,” said a military source, adding, “the air component operation is delivering high-grade intelligence and we can map names and groups to people we known that have been or are part of ABB’s inner circle.”

Al-Baghdadi hides in the same IRGC base where his predecessor Zarqawi, and also al-Zawahiri + Hamza bin-Laden used to hide.

In summary, those fighter jets will remain in Libya to defend Tripoli and it they will come with light anti aircrafts coz its what Tripoli government is lacking and recently siraj was in Italy and Britain. What a game. Come we defeat Us blood thirsty haftar killing innocent people.

another good shadowy reason for the US and gangsters to occupy another Arab country. The man the claimed they killed long ago is now suddenly alive again. Do not forget the photo showing the so called Al Bahgdadi havingtea with US presidency candidate…this is the highest level of hypocracy by the occupiers forces.

A false prophet, Pi$$ be upon him : the kuffar is richer, more powerful and blessed by Jah. Even in al-Azhar they’re asking themselves questions if Allah doesn’t sides with the Jews… No way : the God of the Jews is more powerful than the Moon god.

@Abu bakr, running and hiding after loosing all territory. That is why nobody sees him. The head of a small group of manafiqun risking the destruction of the Ummah.

Abu bakr : the Caliphuck is dead. Your cockroach is hiding, he abandoned the battle, and Coran says that whoever abandons the battle will end in al-Jahimi (hëll)
