BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraqi officials said Sunday that an airstrike wounded the leader of the Islamic State group, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Pentagon officials said they had no immediate information on such a strike or al-Baghdadi being wounded.

Iraq's Defense and Interior Ministries issued statements saying al-Baghdadi had been wounded, without elaborating.

An Interior Ministry intelligence official told The Associated Press that al-Baghdadi was hit during a meeting Saturday with militants in the town of Qaim in Iraq's western Anbar province. The official, citing informants within the militant group, said the strike wounded al-Baghdadi. A senior Iraqi military official also said he learned in operational meetings that al-Baghdadi had been wounded.

Humanint on the ground and on the inside, that's refreshing to know.

Well, he's not dead but this will certainly slow him down and who knows the wounds may be fatal. The so called brains behind IS's death would be much welcomed the world over.

Isn't this when the Iraqi Army or US troops step in to arrest the prick.

Shouldn't he now be transferred to an Army base?

Or are they going to patch him up and apologise for hindering his progress?

I'm their leader is safe in IS terrorist territory but he is weak so a drone/airstrikes will continue to rain down on his location.

You can't make martyrs out of these muslims because every one of them thinks they are a martyr.
Bombs away.
