Commander operating against the terrorist group Islamic state Western coalition, us Lieutenant General Stephen Townsend, commented on reports about the death of the leader of the IG Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
«Despite the messages we receive from a variety of sources, I can neither confirm nor deny this information. Don’t know whether he was alive or dead, but I wanted to second», — said the General.
«We are told that he was dead as a nail. But I want to say that even if this message is false, we will haunt him until the end of it,» said the captain.
Meanwhile, the London-based The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that senior sources in the leadership of the «Islamic state» confirmed reports of the death of al-Baghdadi.
Note that for the last three years the media 12 times reported that the leader of ISIS was killed. All these reports were false.
