It’s “highli likely” that Russian airstrikes eliminated ISIS Leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi last month, the Russian state-run news agency Sputniknews reported, citing Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov.

“According to the Russian Defense Ministry, it is highly likely that IS [ISIS] leader al-Baghdadi was eliminated as a result of a Russian Aerospace Forces strike on the militant command post in the southern suburb of the city of Raqqa in late May this year,” the agency quoted Syromolotov.

The Russian official added that the “information is now verified through various channels.”

Earlier this month, reports appeared that the Russian Aerospace Forces allegedly killed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in southern Raqqah. However, these reports were described as unconfirmed.

    If parts of Baghdadi are eventually found they must be returned to Israel for burial immediately :)

      No, Arizona, to be close to his good chum the (very) senior Senator from that SW US state.

          BREAKING NEWS: John McCains best friend has died in a Russian airstrike during an operation in mid may, According to Russian MoD.

      • FlorianGeyer

        Could the remains be shared between Israel and Arizona ?

        • BMWA1

          In McCain’s case, might I suggest the coronal as opposed to sagittal plane? Anterior to Israel, dorsal to AZ?

          • FlorianGeyer

            Should a few other bits be kept just in case the UK and EU want a memorial as well ?

        McCain himself will not be buried in Arizona, he is going to be buried with full honors in Tel Aviv for being a wonderful Mossad agent who infiltrated the US politics, sold secrets to Israel, and started wars for Israels sake.
        If he was buried in the US, future generations would just scrawl “traitor” and “war criminal” across his headstone anyway.

      ha ha I was about to say… It is highly unlikely, because he has probably been in a Tel Aviv strip club right now watching BBC news headlines for months ha ha.

      • FlorianGeyer

        That would be an all male strip club of course :)

    • Gary Sellars

      No problem. Just load them into an empty warhead on a Iranian Shabab-3 IRBM and send them express post to the Knesset.

      No expenses spared for our Zionist “friends”…..

      • FlorianGeyer

        Bloody good idea .

    • Martin Cooper

      His parts,only need to be in the bin as garbage can only go to the tip.

  • Free man

    I hope it’s final. How many times can a person die?

    • Real Anti-Racist Action

      I know right, I remember reading the report years ago that he was wounded badly in an airstrike, and that militants took him to the Golan Heights where he was transferred to Israel hospital for treatment for his critical injuries.
      I still wonder if that was not the true story that happened, as not one has publicly seen him since.

    Send him to Arlinghton cementery…
