Radio Iran claims, #IslamicState #chief #AbuBakralBaghdadi has #killedTehran: In what could deal a severe jolt to the extremist organisation Islamic State, Radio Iran has claimed that ISIS caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has died. According to a tweet by the All India Radio (AIR), Baghdadi’s death claim has been made by Radio Iran.

It can be noted that a Guardian report last week claimed that Baghdadi had received serious ‘life-threatening’ injuries during a US-led airstrike in March and that the strike had left him seriously wounded.

The ISIS overran a huge swathe of Iraq and Syria in June last year and established the so-called “Islamic State” across occupied areas and anointed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as its caliph.

Declaring the Caliphate, Baghdadi who rarely makes public appearances, appeared at a mosque in July, demanding all Muslims to pledge allegiance to him. The US has imposed a bounty worth $10m on the al-Baghdadi’s head.

Despite a spate of coalition strikes on ISIS in Iraq and Syria since August last year, the extremists continue to advance and unleash bloodshed and terror.
