BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:50 A.M.) – Rumors emerged on Tuesday regarding the alleged apprehension of the Islamic State’s (ISIL) leader, Ibrahim Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, by either the Russian Special Forces in northern Syria.

Russian media outlets alleged Baghdadi was captured by the Russian Special Forces during a secret raid in Syria’s northern countryside; however, no photos or videos were released to confirm this claim.

Several rumors have spread in the past regarding the capture of Baghdadi in both Syria and Iraq; however, these claims are often false.

The capture of Baghdadi would be a major blow to the Islamic State, as they have already lost large chunks of territory in both Iraq and Syria this year.

Yup, but captured would be cooler. I think there is a Syrian rope waiting for this cockroach somewhere…
Thus, a pair of concrete shoes and a chopper travel over the sea to make him a French styled “Bigeard’s shrimp”, would be a cheaper option, nevertheless, I’d much prefer a trial.

Perhaps he should be sold as a Gay s*x slave in the slave market of Libya. I look forward to seeing him on the porn sites being gang-banged by faggots.

Baghdadi Bukkake starring Abu Bakr.
