Tal Afar ( Islamic State has canceled the Friday prayers at all mosques in Tal Afar town, west of Mosul city and pledged posting an audio recording for the group’s leader to show he is still alive, a local source said.

“IS militants have banned the Friday prayers at all of Tal Afar mosques after a curfew was imposed in the wake of heavy shelling against procession of a prominent Arab leader there,” the source from Nineveh province told AlSumaria News on Friday.

In related news, the source, who preferred anonyimity, said, “IS distributed brief statement vowing to post a new audio recording for its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to show he is still alive.”

The militants, according to the source, “began to feel that Baghdadi’s disappearance and growing news over his death raise concerns of the group leaders and members, especially in Tal Afar, which could create divisions and conflicts on posts and profits.”

News reports circulated over the past few weeks have claimed that Baghdadi was killed in an airstrike in Syria.

Earlier this week, a source was quoted as saying that non-Iraqi IS militants executed the last local leader in Tal Afar and the town is currently run by Arab and foreign members after eliminating all the Iraqi leaders.

Tal Afar is one of the important strongholds still held by IS in Nineveh since August 2014.

  1. They mean they are editing past recordings of the leader clown! And making a new one together from past speeches to make it appear he is alive. Why audio are all there camera’s and cell phones broken! The only proof that would be credible would be a video of him holding the morning paper. it’s a ploy to get all ISIS fighters a reason to believe they are still fighting for something! A last ditch effort to die for no reason lol.

  2. ISIS, Daesh and all other terrorist organizations are creation of CIA, Mossad, KGB, Raw, IS and so on. Secret agencies and terrorist organizations are different faces of same coin.

  3. I’ll bet the real Abū Bakr al-Baghdadi 50 lashes he doesn’t give a recorded speech. He’s dead and dead men tell no lies.

    If there is a recording, it was probably recorded just before he died and sounds something like this; ouch, Oooo, this hurts, ahh,
    Eeee, ouch!!!

  4. All countries Secret agencies are helping terrorists organization for vested interest and work against humanity. Hypocrite, greedy , ill minded and without brain people are working for terrorists or mafia. I stand for humanity and peace.

  5. My motto is stand for all humanity no matter who. If you analyze the reality without being prejudice then you will find the truth otherwise not. reality is bitter and most of the people do not want to listen.

  6. ISIS , Daesh and all other terrorist organizations including secret agencies are involve in killing of human being and working against humanity. My motto stand humanity and speak for humanity. My efforts are to find the true word God and pass on to human being for the welfare of humanity no matter who.
