The semi-official channel ‘Al-Iraqiya’ quoted the Interior Ministry “the international coalition launched a strike targeting a gathering of the terrorist organization ISIS that included Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. It resulted in his injury.”

The ministry added, “The strike killed some other ISIS leaders.”
