Abu Bakr al Baghdadi IS leader - ISIS leader, Abu bakr al-baghdadi trapped in mosul by Iraqi and Kurdish forces

The fight against ISIS is getting seriously intense as reports emerged today that ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al-baghdadi is trapped in Mosul after Iraqi and Kurdish forces laid siege to the city.

Al-baghdadi, the second most wanted man in the world, has a $10 million bounty on his head. According to a Senior Kurdish official, Hoshiyar Zebari, Baghdadi is holed up in the city with ISIS bombmaker Fawzi Ali Nouimeh. With baghdadi’s presence in the city, it is believed that the Jihadis will fight more ferociously to defend and protect him.

Ironically, It was from a mosque in Mosul that Al-baghdadi first declared his sinister caliphate in 2014. The group is responsible for the deaths of thousands of people.
