This just released...and AWESOME, if true. However, with the reliability of news out of the war zone, lately....If the ISIS pos leader turns out to actually be dead and cavorting with his 27 virgins...I will still say: Charred Rolex...or it didn't happen.
More, here as the story unfolds.


Iraq claims IS chief Baghdadi hit in air raid




Baghdad (AFP) - Iraq claimed Sunday to have struck a convoy carrying Islamic State group leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in an air raid near the Syrian border but said his fate was unknown.

Iraqi aircraft hit Baghdadi's convoy as it was "moving towards Karabla to attend a meeting of the Daesh (IS) terrorist leaders," an Iraqi security statement said.

Karabla is on the Euphrates barely five kilometres (three miles) from the Syrian border in western Anbar, a vast Iraqi province which has long been a Sunni insurgent stronghold.

The statement issued by Iraq's "war media cell" said Baghdadi was "transported in a vehicle" after the strike but added that "his health status was unknown".

The meeting place was also struck in the operation and several IS leaders already gathered there were killed or wounded, it said.

Interior ministry spokesman Saad Maan told AFP that "the strike was yesterday (Saturday) at noon".

In Washington, a US military official said: "We've seen the Iraqi statement about al-Baghdadi but have no info that confirms it."

Baghdadi's death would give the war against the most violent jihadist organisation in modern history a much-needed boost, but such claims have been made in the past.

Too much heat in Syria drove him out of cover?

This video from Reuters claims Baghdadi was not among the dead.

...standard reply at this point. We'll have to wait and see. The article said he was transported in a vehicle after the strike. It doesn't say if he was wounded, critically wounded, dead,...or alive.




The statement issued by Iraq's "war media cell" said Baghdadi was "transported in a vehicle" after the strike but added that "his health status was unknown."

Agreed, I just found that while searching for other sources.

I will add if I find any confirmation either way.

Thanks for the thread

As many as it takes to show the US has some / any success over there?

Meh....killing bin Laden didn't stop anything. Some other ISTard will just step up to carry on the mission. You can't just disband that many people working towards a goal because you kill one person.

As many times as it take for the murdering psychopath to assume room temperature.
It doesn't matter who makes that happen.

Isn't he already dead, or not…?


Iraqi security sources have reported previously that Baghdadi had been injured or killed in strikes in the past but the claims were either never verified or later denied.

The health and whereabouts of Baghdadi, who has a $US10 million ($13.6 million) bounty on his head, are the subject of constant speculation.

He was reported wounded multiple times over the past year and his apparent survival has only added to the mystery surrounding the IS chief.

Breaking old news. US victorious in Middle East. Some Iraqi official trying to cash in on the Bounty (again). Wash, rinse, repeat…

Once should be sufficient.

How would they even know? I mean realistically, is there someone over there in ISIS snitching? It all seems vague, convenient, and really unlikely. Much ado about nothing, as per the usual.
