The leader of international terrorist organization Islamic State is still alive and remains in charge of militant group, AFP citing officials in the US Pentagon reported Friday.
Despite efforts by the United States and its coalition partners to kill the ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been able to operate his terrorist organization, keeping a low-profile all the while dolling out orders to his top surrogates.
Bahgdadi was last heard last month when audio of the terrorist leader surfaced, which contained a new pronouncement declaring himself the leader of a renewed Muslim caliphate. Baghdadi can also be heard urging his supporters to defend the city of Mosul, which the Iraqi Army is currently fighting to recapture.
