Iranian state media quoted Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei as saying Islamic State leader Abu Bakrh Al-Baghdadi was “definitely dead”. A representative of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards backed up the statement, but Ali Shirazi did not wish to elaborate on the claim. Last June 17 Syrian and Russian Government claimed that Al-Baghaddi was dead but they have no hard evidence. According to the officials, Daesh leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was eliminated by the airstrike. The airstrike targeted a meeting of Daesh leaders and that occurred, Senior leaders of the Daesh terrorist group were meeting at the time of the May 28 strike. Rumors have continued to mount that he was killed in a variety of U.S. led actions, but little evidence has appeared to support those claims. it would be a massive disaster to Isis with the loss of their leader Al-Baghaddi, with the group now all but driven out of Iraq and clinging on to its territory in Syria. It is likely, Russian and Western military officials believed that they killed the leader. Assaults on Raqqa have been launched by troops of the Assad regime, backed by Russian air strikes and Iranian and Lebanese Hezbollah forces on the ground; a Kurdish and Arab force with US and British special forces and backed by American warplanes; and an Arab and Turkman contingent supported by the Turks. He joined al-Qaeda in Iraq after his release and later became the head of Isis.His radicalisation took place while being held at the American detention centre, Camp Bucca, in Iraq. Baghdadi, it is believed, was born Ibrahim Awad Ibrahim al-Badri in Samarra, Iraq, in 1971.
