ISIS Twitter Account Confirms Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s Death

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi

A Twitter account affiliated with Al-I’tisaam Media announced Tuesday that it would publish details regarding the killing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and his succession, IraqiNews.com reported.

The Tweet was then republished by the Iranian government’s Al Alam news network, under the headline: “News of the killing of al-Baghdadi, leader Daash (ISIS).”

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, known to his supporters as Amir al-Mu’minin, Caliph Ibrahim, was proclaimed as caliph of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS, where the last S stands for Syria instead).

ISIS is an Islamic extremist group in western Iraq and north-eastern Syria, self-described as the “Islamic State.”

Al-Baghdadi, formerly known as Abu Du’a, claimed descent from the prophet Muhammad himself, hence his full name, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi Al-Husseini Al-Qurashi.

In October 2011, the US State Department listed al-Baghdadi as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist, and announced a reward of up to $10 million for information leading to his capture or death.

Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has $25 million on his head.

It appears that somebody out there in the vast desert stands to collect a lot of money, as a U.S. bombing raid in the town of Mosul killed the great caliph.

72 virgins will be delivered on schedule.
