Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi May Be Hiding In Syria's Al-Bukamal. Multiple ATGM Strikes And Helicopter Landings Reported

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi

The Hezbollah-linked media said that the leader of ISIS Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi may be hiding in one of the districts in the liberated city of Abu Kamal in Syria, according to RIA.

Hezbollah did not elaborate beyond that.

At the same time something is very strange is ongoing in the area of al-Bukamal, according to local sources. As it was reported earlier, Syrian troops are still struggling to secure the area after the Syrian Defense Ministry declared the liberation of the city on November 9.

ISIS reportedly used at least 10 anti-tank guided missiles against pro-government forces in the area. The fact that the terrorist group uses such expensive weapon en masse may confirm that ISIS members defend some VIP of the group.

Furthermore, multiple landings of Russian and Syrian helicopters have been observed in the al-Bukamal area over the last 48 hours. No details are available about the purpose of this move. Most likely, The allies are deploying special operations forces there.

The army and Hezbollah also started evacuating civilians from al-Bukamal. This should help in case of a large-scale search operation for… let’s say al-Baghdadi.

In mid-June Russian Defense Ministry said that al-Baghdadi might have been killed in a Russian air strike near Raqqa on May 28. Turkish officials said they have received persistent reports that he is dead, but in late September ISIS published a “new Baghdadi tape” recording in response to the reports.

Baghdadi is believed to have been born in Samarra, north of Iraqi capital Baghdad, in 1971. He was reportedly a cleric in a mosque when the city was invaded by US-led forces in 2003, according to The Sun. While reports differ on when al-Baghdadi was radicalised, it has been suggested that he was brainwashed in Camp Bucca, a US prison in southern Iraq. He was previously the leader of extremist group al-Qaeda in Iraq which eventually transformed into ISIS in 2010. Al-Baghdadi’s only known public appearance on video was in 2014 when he delivered a sermon in Mosul, Iraq. The “caliphate” had been declared by al-Baghdadi earlier that year.

    this zio stooge has nowhere to hide and no one to protect him – he is doomed like his evil master funders – soon to rot in hell

  • TheSecular

    I’d say capture the bastard alive.
    We need to know where he came from, Know where the group got it’s funding.
    Put him on trial and send him to his doom.

    • palebluedot

      Absolutely. “Encourage” the cockroach to spill the beans. Watch the state actors to see who squirms.

      Connect all the dots.

    • Rob

      Israel, America and NATO project ISIS taking last breaths in Syria. No more fund and arms for Abu Baker Al Bagh dadi.

      • Jens Holm

        I hope you are not born as a twin.

    • Thegr8rambino

      yes how fucking amazing would it be seeing him in SAA captivity? :)))

    • goingbrokes

      It would be a massive publicity coup to capture and try him on TV/online. But it is problematic. If it was done in secret the msm would claim he was tortured and all “confessions” would not be valid. If it was done openly the trial would be a target for a hypersonic missile.

    • dutchnational

      Seems Hezbollah cannot even gain or hold the city. Pityful.

      • Bruce MacKinnon

        Hezbollah is now busy getting the setup ready in S Lebanon after all the SA threats.

  • Kira Binkley

    Nice photo, Ibrahim!
    I just have this one thing to say: You couldn’t have been brainwashed too badly!

    Like I said, in their arrogance, the Yanks are gullible.

    • Papi1960R

      I’m wondering how a Radical Muslim can be radicalized into a Radical Muslim?
      It wasn’t the Americans. That a easy cheap shot.
      The reestablishment of the Caliphate has been the official stance of the Counsel of Islamic Scholars in Jeddah (where all Official Sunni policy is directed from) since 1952.

      • Kira Binkley

        Depends, I guess, on just what your definition of “radicalized” is.
        What wasn’t the Americans? But yes, it is an “easy” shot, because it is true.
        I’ll google Jeddah and the Counsel of Islamic scholars and get back to you.
        Ibrahim may very well be in Al Buquerque. I mean Al Bukamal. Albuquerque is where I am. —-KiraSeer

    Al Baghdadi… or some unfortunate US/Saudi/Israeli ‘assets’ that didn’t get out in time?

    • FlorianGeyer

      Hopefully all of the list :)
      It would be the icing on the cake to capture that lot . What a treasure trove of Western duplicity that would prove :)

      • Rodger

        They would just claim that they were conducting a top secret operation themselves to catch him. And then blame the Russians/Syrians for shooting their guys with a lot of crocodile tears.

        • FlorianGeyer

          That indeed is the way the US/Israel operate .
          However they do not control all of the narrative now. This is the first major conflict where the US has not been able to do this.

          • Jens Holm

            Rubbish again.

          • FlorianGeyer

            So saith Jens from Denmark.

            “While you were sleeping, Wikileaks released yet another report on Internet filtering…But this time the filtering is not in China, or Thailand, or Saudi Arabia…this time, it’s in Denmark.”

            Im for filetring like that and not only for childabuse. Its impossible to find all those criminels and they are just changing addresses right away as we can make new mailboxes witin 5 minutes.

            There are problems about it, becuse You should be able to know sober pictures of all bodyparts as well as protecting You aginst pregnancy.

            Also famous paintings in churches as well as art sometimes is taken out.
            But we have big server headquarters here and a lot is comming through those.

            We have our own hard criminels in that too.

            So fine for me even they should improve a lot and will – later. We do try too keep Jihadist things down and nazithings low as well. Only parts of it, You should know it exist but it shold not be like selling it.

  • Xanatos

    No need to believe in any VIP. Isis left behind militants hiding in buildings and underground. They are very dangerous, without a high profile leader.

  • Mr. Mobile Performance

    If they do catch al-Baghdadi, they should give him a taste of his own medicine and sell him into slavery to some Nazidi women.

    • FlorianGeyer

      I would give him a stark choice, speak candidly of who supported him and receive a punishment life in a humane jail or life in an Oubliette in Russia if he refuses .

      • Mr. Mobile Performance

        In order for a punishment to have any deterrent value at all, it needs to be as public as possible, like a live feed of al-Baghdadi being led around on a leash by Nazidi women whose sexual slavery al-Baghdadi so happily authorized and justified.

    • You can call me Al

      Does that mean in “beheading” in two ways tat I can think of !!?.

      • Mr. Mobile Performance

        Whatever happens to this jerk-off will be too good for him.

        • You can call me Al

          He gets his knob chopped off.

  • Deo Cass

    Al-Baghdadi is just a cover name. He is a US Mossad agent and his real name is Simon Elliot.

  • John Whitehot

    they published a tape in which only “his” voice is heard.
    if he was alive, why not videotaping him.

    Even I would be able to record a tape with my voice and then reprocess it with DAW software so that Al-Baghdadi voice will pronounce my words.

    Not to mention that last year, there was the publishing and the copyrighting of an algorithm (from a Canadian software house I think) able to do just that kind of work. In this case, no DAW skills are needed, the only needed thing is a sample of the voice of Baghdadi, and there’s plenty available.

    This means that if they published that “tape”, he’s really died in that Russian airstrike.

    • Thegr8rambino

      i guess time will tell if hes really still alive or not

  • Tiresia Branding

    The Bagdadi’s rolex stop ticketing one year ago. They search for more lucrative NATO&Israeli officials. I hope they show to the world their faces soon

    “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi May Be Hiding In Syria’s Al-Bukamal”
    Or he may be hiding in Haifa (more likely).

    • Jens Holm

      Why Haifi.

      • goingbrokes

        ’cause he is an Israili!

        • Jens Holm

          qwerty

        • dutchnational

          Based upon what evidence?

          Or just another conspiracy theory?

  • Deo Cass

    Quote: “Furthermore, multiple landings of Russian and Syrian helicopters have been observed in the al-Bukamal area over the last 48 hours.” Do you have confirmation from the Syrian government side that they were actually Russian and Syrian helicopters? There are some who are speculating it was US helicopters ferrying special forces there in the guise of ISIS!

    • dutchnational

      It was sunni Lunarians coming to get Hezbollah and guess what, Hezbollah ran.

  • goingbrokes

    I do hope they capture Big Daddy Baker. They could play on continuous loop “The Rivers of Babylon” in his cell, with a particular emphasis on the words “we remember Zion”!!!
    Boney M. – what a name!

  • eric zweistein

    Shlomo Baghdadi hiding out in Syria? Well possible, Syria being a secular state, kosher food is always available around the corner…

  • dutchnational

    I have been reading the weird conspiracy theories by many commenters here.

    Entertaining conspiracy theories on this scale is a sign of mental illness, often combined with a low IQ. I hope those afflicted can get well soon.

    Aside from that, if Baghdadi is indeed in the city, that would more likely plead for Hezbollah not having taken (the whole of) the city.

  • dutchnational

    While SAA, Hezbollah and SF are persisting in their strange silence on Al Bukamal, SOHR, usually reliable, is reporting IS is now fully in control of the city, as far as they weren’t before. Hezbollah and their few friends driven out of the city.

    Has SF been lying or letting itself be used as propaganda or fake news media or too afraid to admit they have been had?

    I do not have a good feeling about this. Usually SF is better then this.
