 ISIS leader may be killed by Russian airstrike

Russia’s Defense Ministry has said it is verifying reports whether the ISIS terrorist group’s leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed by a Russian airstrike on the southern outskirts of Syria’s Raqqa.

"According to information, which is being verified via different channels, the meeting was also attended by the ISIS leader Ibrahim Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who was eliminated in the strike," the ministry said.

The airstrike was carried out overnight to May 28 against a command post, where the ISIS group’s leaders were meeting to discuss the routes for the terrorists’ exit from Raqqa through the so-called southern corridor, the ministry said in a statement.
