“the office had received accurate information indicating that the leader of ISIS “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi” may have been arrested in the north of Syria through a joint action by the Syrian-Russian joint intelligence forces.
This came after Baghdadi forcibly left Mosul as a result of the pursuit of his popular mobilization forces on April 2, 2017 and his entry to the Syrian border.
The media office indicated that it will refrain from accurate information of the details of the operation pending confirmation of some of them and information still coming as a result of the accuracy of the stage and the consequences that may result from it.
The President of the European Security and Information Department, Luciano Consorti has welcomed the arrest of Al Baghdadi.Despite this, the whole report looks very questionable. No comments from Syrian or Russian security have appeared on the issue. However, if confirmed, the detention of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi will be a major step in combating ISIS terrorists in Syria and Iraq.
