BREAKING: Intel Group Says ISIS Leader al-Baghdadi Photographed for the First Time in 5 YEARS

Originally published at:

Underground ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was reportedly seen in a recent photograph for the first time since 2014; taking part in a new video released by the Islamic State’s propaganda wing following the fall of their caliphate throughout Syria.

“Rumors of al-Baghdadi’s death have persisted as ISIS militants who have surrendered to U.S.-backed coalition forces, believed their ideological leader abandoned their cause,” reports Fox News. “Baghdadi also suffers from diabetes, high blood pressure and injuries sustained during an airstrike years ago.”

2) The video shows Baghdadi in a casual conversational setting with others (their faces blurred). He talks about war against "Crusaders" and about battles in #Baghouz #Syria being over, indicating that this interview was filmed somewhat recently.
