ISIS Leader Fled Coup Attempt By His Own Fighters – Report

FILE IMAGE: Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi

ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi survived a coup attempt launched by foreign fighters of the terrorist group in his eastern Syrian hideout last January, The Guardian reported on February 8, citing intelligence officials.

During the failed coup, a firefight broke out between foreign fighters and al-Baghdadi’s bodyguards in a village near the town of Hajin in the middle Euphrates River Valley. ISIS has offered a reward to whomever kills Abu Muath al-Jazairi, a foreign terrorist who is believed to be the planner of the coup attempt.

“They got wind of it just in time … There was a clash and two people were killed. This was the foreign fighter element, some of his most trusted people,” The Guardian quoted an intelligence official as saying.

According to The Guardian, al-Baghdadi fled to a unspecified desert area following the coup attempt. ISIS maintains influence in two deserts near the Euphrates Valley, the Homs desert in central Syria and the al-Anbar desert in western Iraq.

The rapid collapse of ISIS’ least strongholds in the Euphrates Valley has led to a state of chaos among the group’s fighters who are surrendering in masses to US-backed forces. According to a recent statistic by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), more than 3,400 terrorists, mostly foreigners, have surrendered so far.

The upcoming few days will likely witness the complete elimination of the ISIS-held pocket in the Euphrates Valley. However, the terrorist group’s leader may survive for a long time.

Reports from UK intelligence officials regarding ISIS :) Those same officials that actually created, financed and armed that scum. That same Guardian that tells us Novichok stories. SF, you should pay more attention to “informational hygiene” :)

Yes I was thinking that sounded more like a cover story as it was most likely al-Baghdadi was helicoptered out to safety months ago and this is to explain his disappearance when the final area is captured soon.


Washington have transported ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to Venezuela for another important assignment. LOL


Yes, and the captured ISIS will be given an offer they cannot refuse by the US.

Create murder and mayhem in Venezuela for the CIA or create murder and mayhem in another US target nation with large resources.


Washington have already failed on creation Syrian and Iraqi type chaos and coup in Turkey. Washington will again fail in Venezuela now, just watch. They are Zionist’s craps..

“ISIS has offered a reward to whomever kills Abu Muath al-Jazairi, a foreign terrorist who is believed to be the planner of the coup attempt.”

That’s great! The Iraqi PMUs could use the cash/gold… just before they put a bullet in the head of the head-chopper handing over their payment.


Good point.

The true story is that the foreign US fighters infiltrating ISIS, killed Al-Baghdadi in his hiding in Euphrates River Valley.
The next day however Al-Baghdadi succeeded to escape to an unknown deserted area with his Russian, Iranian, Venezuelan, Palestinian and Hezbollah bodyguards. Dont worry folks, we will find him.

And the idiot enters the converation with his nomal amount of propaganda b.s. …

This report illustrates that power (manifested as interest) is the cause of conflict. It cuts across all apparently unifying principles: family, kin, nation, religion, ideology, politics – everything. So often we unite with the enemies of our principles, because that is what serves our interest. The desire for power is the cause of war.


Anything coming from The Guardian literally is not worth quoting.


This has to be wonderful reality TV material. I’m sure somebody there at ‘ISUS Productions, LLC’ is making the greatest reality show or PPV flick ever. Episode 227: Can Abu Survive the Coup? Like The Apprentice except with heavy weapons and religiousness.

Best comment so far, thanks !

keep him alive until “he gets killed by the US”.

same exact playbook of UBL, while he’s already a skeleton under two meters of desert.

I think the infiltration unit by which state actors control these organizations finally received instructions to decapitate the organization. Lol


That’s not ISIS’s leader, that’s Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. ISIS’s leader is Benjamin Mileikowsky (aka “Netanyahu”).

Willing Conscience (The Truths

Why does this just sound like an excuse for, ‘I simply ran away because I was so scared I was going to be killed when we lost the fight’, or did what they tell us happened really happen, it’d be the first time it has if it’s true. I have my doubts, I think it’s more likely he’s just a coward that’s come up with a good excuse to run away from the fight.

Zionism = EVIL

And now he is back in Tel Aviv :)
