UPDATE: August 19, 2014 – 18:31: VIDEO: ISIL threatens to attack Americans wherever they are, plunge them into blood in response to air strikes targeting ISIL


Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) An intelligence source revealed on Tuesday that the leader of the organization of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, survived a drone air strike that had targeted him by the Iraqi-Syrian border in Nineveh Province, according to a high-level team responsible for monitoring the leader’s movements.

The source said that  “the leader of ISIL, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was about to be killed by an air strike near the Iraqi-Syrian border in Nineveh province, Rabia district, while on on his way to the ISIL controlled Syrian city of Raqqa,” noting that “the attack occurred two days ago. It was planned as a joint operation coordinated between Iraqi Security Forces, the Peshmerga and Americans advisers. Drone reconnaissance identified the target accurately.”

The source said that “the military effort focused on targeting sites which have been identified in Nineveh and its environs. These targets were detected via satellite and American overflights,” pointing out that “most of the organization’s leaders have fled to the Syrian city of Raqqa, including al-Baghdadi, his assistant Shaker Wahib and about 15 of the organization’s leaders, including those of Arab, Chechen and European nationality. ”

The source, who asked not to be named, added that “This high-level team of Iraqi Security Forces, Peshmerga and Americans advisers monitor the movements of al-Baghdadi, and a number of his prominent associates using high-precision monitoring equipment affixed to drones,” noting that “the team operates a surveillance base to monitor ISIL movements, particularly in Nineveh and the buffer zone on the Syrian border.”

IraqiNews.com has not been able to independently verify the sources claims.

In July IraqiNews.com published a report by an Iraqi TV news network regarding Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi alleged injuries and escape to Syria.

  1. As a sunni muslim I dare to say who says Isis represent s sunni Muslim .
    During Haj we throw stone to there devil so Isis fighters are the devils which Muslim throws stone with full strength
    So now tell who say Isis fighters are Muslim they terrorist but not Muslim

    • Asma, what about the shari’a isn’t it part of islam religion? I am trying to understand islam but I cannot comprehend the shari’aa! If you are against Isis then you are really not a real Muslim

      • Elizabeth, Shari’a means legislation in Arabic. It’s a general word that could be related to any source other than religion. It’s too complicated to describe everything in this page, but you can contact me for any questions you have in mind.

      • The greatest problem when somebody who doesn`t understand islam calls a muslim to nonbeliever only because he do not want this brutal,brainwashed,bloodthirsty mob called ISIS.Are you crazy!?

    • And I believe you are Arab! Arab killing killing innocent kurdish civilian during Saddam which I believe all you arabs from Iraq and other coward arab countries was helping Saddam and you arabs to kill our people on own land!!! so why when Israel defending itself all arabs can’t do nothing except cries for help from UN !! saying oh human right how about Kurdistan !! All Arabs are ISIS terrorist one way or another but we (Kurdistan ) still helping million refugee from failed iraqi !! s***e !! state !! get real only Isarel know arabs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. The part I don’t understand is why these terrorists want to force their religion on other people. This shows us two important facts. The God they believe is incapable of changing hearts and powerless by himself. His followers have to force their religion with guns that are exported from other countries. Isis terrorists are mistakenly worshiping the evil one. Devil cannot create anything but good at destroying people’s lives. When God arises, his enemies will be scattered. Only Jesus can save people from destruction. He is the only way to salvation. Believe in him and your life will be changed forever. You heart will removed of evilness and filled with God’s love. You will be able to love all human being regardless of their religions.

  3. Isis is created by US, Israel and Saudi Arabia to cause a regional problem for the Muslim world. Isis is not Muslim let alone Sunni or shia! There are numbers of brainless arabs supporting them because they have been brainwashed into it! They do not represent Islam in any way possible because if they did, there wouldn’t be shia and Sunni fighting them in joint hands! There are 1.7 billion Muslims in the world, if Muslims promoted this, do you think you will be alive? Think about it! They are just fulfilling Israel’s agenda!!

    • Sure and USA helping them by bombing them and sending Americans there to be killed!Are you lost it you stupid brainwashed retard!Have you ever read anything else than koran!I hate stupid people whatever they coming from!Arabs killing arabs you skit 97 % of the arabs killed eachother the last 60 years Israel killed only 3 % and those were attacking them from behind because arabs are mostly cowards,can kill only unarmed people!

  4. أبناء إسماعيل، وتأتي المنزل.
    يقول الرب: “تعال البيت أبنائي، وتأتي المنزل. يغفر والدك إبراهيم. لا الغضب ضد إخوانكم. انظر لقد جعلت لكم شعب عظيم، ولكن حان الوقت لتأتي الى المنزل الأب. لقدرك هو أن يسكن بين إخوتكم. أنا ألتقي بكم في ساعة الليل لتظهر لك الطريق إلى البيت “

  5. We muslims we do not believe on nuclear weapon. We believe on allah because in the time of the messenger of allah mohammad (saw). 313 man without any srong weapon defited thousands of non muslims. Even when the muslims comquer the roman empire they were not to much but few. So we muslims we believe on allah and u chritians you believe on your weapons and worldly things. U can see the difference now!!!

    • What can be worse than a black muslim!?Arabs sold your ancestors and now you became a muslim in the prison!Just disgustuing and stupid!Take the Spartans they were 300 and stan against the whole Persian army!It is better than your old tale:-)))Why want the muslim make everybody to muslim!?Are you so insecure!???

  6. ISIS is a funded campaign by anti Muslim governments which are trying to expose Muslims as ISIS but infact what ISIS is doing is totally against all sharia and islamic laws.

  7. drone on droner………………one threatens death from above on behalf of a greater power…..ditto the droner……drone on droner!!

  8. brothers…hammad ,Elemer,zeejay..,I think you are not reading Quran properly, if you read carefully it says if the person accepts allah ok otherwise kill them because allah alone knows what is right and you are referring Mohammad messenger we know his life when he was on the earth .am saying time is coming very soon Jesus will judge people by their actions.Brothers think honestly , am not against anyone am against for those principles which kills lives of people. God is love .Read Bible ,come out of lies .May God bless you.
