Not if the Syrians & Russians can help it
Many of us suspect that ISIS is an astroturfed terrorist group controlled by some Western power. I myself and others have noted before the curious blind spot ISIS has, where it has launched attacks seemingly everywhere except Israel. So really, the idea that it might be secret run by the Israelis (please note I didn't say "Jews") is not a far-fetched one.
If this is true, then it would appear that ISIS' true purpose is to destabilize the Middle East, to Israel's benefit.
I've also noticed that Saudi Arabia has suddenly erupted into a huge mess, coincidentally right as it's becoming clear that ISIS has lost, and will soon be unable to cause any kind of large-scale trouble. (Though we'll probably have to put up with stuff like random stabbing attacks and truck rammings for years to come.) They're going to need something else to destabilize the Middle East, and a war involving Saudi Arabia would serve that purpose nicely.
I just came across this information recently. This article claims Baghdadi was actually born to two Jewish parents and his real name is Elliot Shimon.

OP might be interested in this SF piece
The Hezbollah-linked media said that the leader of ISIS Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi may be hiding in one of the districts in the liberated city of Abu Kamal in Syria, according to RIA. Hezbollah did not elaborate beyond that.
