Baghdad, IRAQ – The youngest son of Islamic State chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in a Russian airstrike on a Syrian village last Friday, an Iraqi commander said Sunday.
“We received certain information that the youngest son of IS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in an airstrike conducted by Russia on a terrorist hideout in a Syrian village two days ago,” Iraqi website Baghdad Today quoted Jabbar al-Ma’mori, a commander in the paramilitary Popular Mobilization Forces, as saying.
Today’s announcement comes a few months after another son of al-Baghdadi was announced dead following a fight with Syrian and Russian troops at a power station in central Homs province, Iraqi News reports.
According to sources, al-Baghdadi has four sons from one wife and a son from another wife.
Al-Baghdadi has been reported killed or wounded on a number of occasions.
No reports about al-Baghdadi have been heard since September 2017, when he urged supporters to wage attacks against the West and keep fighting in Syria and neighboring Iraq.
Al-Baghdadi emerged as leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq, one of the groups that later became Islamic State, in 2010. In October 2011, the US officially designated al-Baghdadi as a terrorist. It has offered a reward of up to $25 million for information leading to his capture or death.
What a mess.
God bless AMERICA!
