The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) has confirmed that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi who is the Isis leader is dead. Director of the UK-based group Rami Abdulrahman had talked to Reuters on Tuesday saying “We have confirmed information from leaders, including one of the first rank, in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor,”. Although, there has been no confirmation from Isis’ official news agency Amaq. SOHR’s sources did not say when Baghdadi supposedly died, or how, except that he is supposed to have been living in the Deir Ezzor area for the last three months.The Pentagon, Kurdish and Iraqi sources were all quick to say that they could not authenticate the SOHR report.”We take any report of this nature with a large dose of salt,” Sebastian Gorka, deputy assistant to US President Donald Trump, said in an interview with Fox News after the SOHR claim surfaced. “We will verify it.The US put up a $25 million (£19 million) reward for Baghdadi’s capture, the same it has offered for al Qaeda leaders Osama bin Laden and his successor Ayman al-Zawahri. It is not yet known if any individual or organsation will claim the bounty but the notorious jihadi is believed to be in hiding in the region around the Syria-Iraq border, moving frequently and avoiding telecommunications to evade detection. The Russian Foreign Ministry had claimed to have carried out an air strike in Syria that killed Baghdadi and several other high profile Isis leaders, but had not provided any evidence backing up this claim.
