BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:45 A.M.) – The Islamic State’s (ISIL) leader and founder, Ibrahim Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, was allegedly killed by an airstrike in Raqqa City, Syrian State TV reported this morning.

While no other other media outlet has claimed Baghdadi has been killed, there were reports of heavy airstrikes over the provincial capital of Raqqa last night.

Without confirmation from the Islamic State’s official media wing, Al-‘Amaq, or images to validate this claim, it is too hard to verify the rumor at this moment.

The terrorist leader has been allegedly killed on numerous occasions in the past; however, all of the rumors were later proven false.

If true and its a big IF, this could lead to the fast downfall of ISIS. They’re on the retreat on all fronts across the ME.

If confirmed, Champagne’s already in the fridge, ready to pop out!
And I hope it was an EU strike! If it was made by German bros, I’d add
schnapps to Champagne!

The only problem is that the EU and the United States have fucked the ME in the first place. The EU and US need to stop funding terrorists in Syria and leave it to the Syrians.

Got Rieling in my cave too. Well, if confirmed : test Champagne+Riesling and PROSIT my dear neighbour! Well, as we have a few Rafales in Jordan, in can also be us and I’d be very pleased if it was a French bomb (not the neutron-bomb as usually, French-bomb is its nickname) that had sent this rascal to his 72 virgin goats as everybody knows for long : better not mess with the French : even if we take hits, we always win in the end, it’s just a question of time!

Flay the Daeshbags

he’s not even rumored to be in Raqqa. He’s most likely in either western Anbar or Eastern Deir ez-Zor

I was just thinking the same thing why the h**l would he remain in Raqqa knowing that it would fall soon. But he was waiting for Jesus to come back and fight on his side so who knows. It doesn’t make sense that he would be in Raqqa

Visibly, the info comes from a Syrian Govt agency.
Abu-Bark al-Jahimi (LOL) is(was) not known to be much clever than Dubya.

“Morons are capable of anything, it’s even how you recognise them”-Michel Audiard in ‘Les Tontons Flingueurs’ (the gun-totting uncles)

“But he was waiting for Jesus to come back and fight on his side”
=> Except that Jesus warned about some false prophet coming in sheep clothes but being a wolf and that he’d be spotted by his acts… I don’t think Abu-Bark is in some pattern like “Love thy enemy” 😉

And Jesus was a sailor
when he walked upon the water
and he spent a long time watching
from his lonely wooden tower
and when he knew for certain
only drowning men could see him
he said All men will be sailors then
until the sea shall free them
but he himself was broken
long before the sky would open
forsaken, almost human
he sank beneath your wisdom like a stone

He has most likely been extracted by a US rescue team and is now laughing in a US base with his US handlers or even back in Israel with his kin.
