BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:10 A.M.) – The infamous leader of the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh), Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, is believed to be currently on the run between the borders of Syria and Iraq, a military source in Damascus told Al-Masdar News this morning.

According to the military source, Al-Baghdadi has been frequently changing his hideouts between Iraq’s Al-Anbar Governorate, and Syria’s Homs and Deir Ezzor governorates.

The source said the Syrian and Iraqi intelligence wings are working closely to discover his whereabouts, but due to his constant movement through the vast desert region between Iraq and Syria, it has proven to be a difficult task.

He would add that Al-Baghdadi is believed to be under the protection of several trusted bodyguards, including many of close confidants that were previously active in Al-Anbar and Deir Ezzor.

Some rumors about Al-Baghdadi have indicated that the terrorist leader has gained a significant amount of weight and altered his appearance so that he could evade capture by the Iraqi and Syrian security forces.

While his forces have lost nearly all of their territory in Syria and Iraq, Al-Baghdadi and his comrades will likely continue to remain hidden in the Syrian Desert until the Islamic State can regroup and retake the ground they lost in the past year.

If Al-Baghdadi has put on weight it is likely due to too much American fast food. Plus the daily bagels of course 🙂
