According to a local source from the northern Iraqi province of Nineveh, since the early hours of Saturday (June 24), the ISIS has informed its elements in the city of Tal Afar that it will issue an important declaration about its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Other headquarters of the terrorist group have also been called on to be in a state of alert.
The source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told the Iraqi satellite TV channel Alsumaria News that, although no one knows for sure what the statement is going to be, everybody maintains that it will contain news on al-Baghdadi’s death.
He added the declaration is expected to be issued soon confirming or denying al-Baghdadi’s death.
Last week, Moscow announced that al-Baghdadi was most probably killed in a Russian airstrike on Syria.
