BREAKING: Brutal ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi SERIOUSLY injured in air strike!
Brutal ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been badly injured in an air strike, according to reports.
The strike, by the US-led coalition, took place in Al-Ba’aj in northern Iraq.
The town is one of the few remaining large ISIS bastions in Iraq after Mosul and Tal Afar.
The incident, which has yet to be independently verified, would come as a huge blow to the jihadi group, which is being beaten back by allied forces across the Middle East.
Last month the US government increased the bounty for ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi from $10 million to $25 million.
The reward will be handed to anyone who comes forward with information on the whereabouts of the terrorist that leads to his capture or death.
A Facebook and Twitter account belonging to the US Central Command confirmed the reward had been increased.
al-Baghdadi is now worth the same amount of money (£20 million) as the leader of al-Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri.
Iraq-born al-Baghdadi sleeps underground in a suicide vest and is becoming increasingly paranoid, ordering executions whilst under attack from Iraqi and Peshmerga troops.
Chilling details of Baghdadi’s movements emerged as Iraqi and Kurdish sources confirmed officers were getting leaks from within Mosul from an undercover agent.
