BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 A.M.) – The Russian military killed the son of the Islamic State’s (ISIS) leader, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, in Syria recently.

Citing a source from Iraq’s Falcon’s intelligence cell, the AFP reported that the Russian military fired three missiles at a cave holding 30 terrorist leaders, including Huzheifah Al-Badri (Baghdadi’s son) in the Homs province.

The attack allegedly resulted in the death of 11 terrorists, including Baghdadi’s son.

However, the Islamic State’s report contrasted this claim, as the terrorist group alleged Baghdadi’s son was killed during an operation against the “Al-Nusayriyah and Russians at the thermal power station in Homs.”

The Iraqi intelligence force responded by saying that “Badri wasn’t even a fighter… he was an icon that was moved from one place to another as a form of psychological propaganda for the rest of the organisation.”

Neither the Russian nor their Syrian counterparts have commented on the death of Baghdadi’s son.
