The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) founder and leader “Sheikh Ibrahim Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi” has reportedly made his public appearance this year inside the Iraqi city of Fallujah – an ISIS stronghold in the Al-‘Anbar Governorate.

Baghdadi can be seen greeting visitors and congratulating the participants of the Quran reciting competition.

In the photos released by ISIS’ social media accounts, Baghdadi appears exhausted and overweight in comparison to his photos released last year.

The date of this competition is believed to be some time in January.

In Fallūjah? A city completely surrounded by Iraqi armed forces?
