His only public appearance as Islamic State chief occurred in 2014 in a Mosul mosque after he proclaimed a caliphate and he has a $10 million U.S. bounty on his head. “We’ve seen the Iraqi statement about al-Baghdadi but have no info that confirms it,” was the military American reaction at the latest news. The strike has reportedly killed a number of ISIS leaders. Fact is that the air force bombed a location where Mr Baghdadi was planning to meet Islamic States commanders. But “fate of murderer al-Baghdadi is unknown and he was carried away by a vehicle. His health condition is still unclear,” a military source added. On the other part, Islamic State supporters said on Twitter that even if Baghdadi had been killed, his self-proclaimed caliphate straddling large areas of Iraq and Syria would survive.
