LEADERS of the brutal Islamic State terror regime have reportedly met in secret to discuss who will become their new headman – fuelling rumours that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been killed.
Although there has not yet been any reports confirming his death, initial reports suggest he died following ongoing fighting in the Iraqi city of Mosul.
The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has received information claiming the terror cell’s tyrannical leaders have been called for an emergency meeting in Iraq.
In October reports surfaced suggesting al-Baghdadi – who has led Daesh since June 2014 – had been taken seriously ill after an assassin poisoned his food.
The brutal warlord released an audio statement last month, urging jihadists to stand their ground as the battle to bring down the terror cell intensifies.
The twisted terrorist told brainwashed followers: “Total war and the greater jihad waged by the Islamic State today, with Allah’s help, amplifies the strong belief that everything is dedicated to the great victory.”
Rumours al-Baghdadi has been killed have been fuelled by the fact that he has not been seen since September, when he was seen travelling through Mosul under heavy guard.
The Iraqi army continue to bombard the city of Mosul and appear to be making good progress. If the latest rumours prove to be true then the death cult’s reign of terror could crumble.
In August, a US drone strike allegedly killed Isis’ chief propagandist Abu Mohamed al-Adnani – the regime’s number two commander – as top leaders are gradually picked off.
The alleged death of the leading jihadi comes after it was revealed one SAS sniper has recently reached a ‘century’ of kills after sniping his 100th victim in the battle against Isis in Mosul.
