Who was Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi?
ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been the world’s most wanted man. His real name was Ibrahim Awad al-Badri and he was born in 1971, near Samarra, north of Baghdad. In 2010, Baghdadi became the leader of ISI (Islamic State of Iraq). In 2013, ISI merged in al-Qaeda, a militant organization backed by a militant group in Syria. Baghdadi declared that his group will now be known as ISIL or ISIS.
The US officially declared Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi a “terrorist” In 2011 and announced a $10M reward for giving information leading his capture or death.
Fake death news of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was claimed many times. Baghdadi was hiding from the last 5-6 years. According to US officials, in May 2017, Baghdadi was wounded in an airstrike and from then he was not commanding ISIS due to his injuries. ISIS media wing Al-Furqan published a video in April, in which they showed a man claiming to be Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. It was after a long long time the Baghdadi was seen since July 2014, when he spoke at a mosque in Mosul.
