London: ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been “critically injured” in air strikes in northern Iraq, according to media reports

The terror mastermind is said to have been wounded after a bombing raid in Al-Ba’aj, it was reported. However, it is not the first time claims have emerged that al-Baghdadi has been either hurt or killed and there has yet to be official confirmation.

 

The Pentagon said in December it believed that the ISIS chief was alive, despite repeated efforts by the US-led coalition to take out the jihadist group leader, the Daily Mail reported.

The US government had also increased the bounty for al-Baghdadi from $10 million to $25 million.

Baghdadi has kept a low profile, despite having declared himself the leader of a renewed Muslim caliphate, but last month released a defiant audio message urging his supporters to defend the northern Iraqi city of Mosul.
