Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been killed in an air raid in Syria by the US-led coalition forces, reports said on Monday. Al-Baghdadi was reported to suffered serious injuries in an airstrike on Friday and later succumbed to his wounds. He was accompanied by several commanders of ISIS at the time of the airstrike, several of whom are either injured or killed.

The coalition operation command has not made a statement so far. There has been no official statement from the US government about these developments too.

According to several sections of the Arabic media, al-Baghdadi was killed in the de facto capital of the Islamic State, the city of Raqqa. Baghdadi was killed in ISIS stronghold Raqqa Iranian state media and Turkish daily Yenis Safak said, citing ISIS-affiliated news agency al-Amaq.

A report by Iraqi news channel Al Sumaria claimed that al-Baghdadi was killed somewhere near the porous border between Iraq and Syria. Several pro-ISIS media outlets, including al-Amaq, also reported about al-Baghdadi’s death.

The terror organization reportedly issued a statement about the death of their leader, which read, “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been killed by coalition airstrikes on Raqqa on the fifth day of Ramadan.”

US TV network CNN on Monday cited US defence officials as saying they received credible intelligence that Baghdadi, who has a $25 million bounty on his head, has moved around within the past six months and had travelled to Mosul.
