BREAKING NEWS: Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi isn’t dead; ISIS leader says he faked his death

The Islamic State leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who has made headlines that he has been killed in a raid by the US special forces says he’s “much alive”.

in a tape played on a Syria TV, Baghdadi laughed off the headlines. The ISIS leader admitted that lives have been lost in the raid but he and his family are safe.

Donald Trump announced that the ISIS leader has been killed to end years-long hunt for one of the world’s most-wanted terrorists.


Syrian state broadcaster says Baghdadi is alive and news in circulation that he’s dead are fake. The ISIS’s leader has had his Wikipedia details edited from dead to a living person after the development.

Trump, who is facing impeachment proceedings and under bipartisan fire for withdrawing troops from the Syrian border, fell for Baghdadi’s stunt and has since addressed the nation.

“[Baghdadi] running into a dead-end tunnel, whimpering and crying and screaming all the way,” Trump said.
