The terrorist group has been rapidly losing territory over the last two years due to efforts by Russian and Syrian forces, as well as the US and its allies. The group has lost most of its forces and resources, leading it to go into hiding.

Daesh* leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was reportedly attacked in a village near Hajin by some of the terrorist organisation’s foreign fighters in an apparent coup attempt, The Guardian reported, citing anonymous intelligence sources. Baghdadi reportedly survived the alleged coup attempt, with his bodyguards taking him into hiding in the nearby desert.

Soon after the attack, which allegedly took place on 10 January, Daesh* placed a bounty on the head of one of its veteran militants — Abu Muath al-Jazairi. While the bounty doesn’t explicitly reveal the reason why the veteran foreign terrorist fighter has fallen in disfavour, intelligence officials, cited by The Guardian, suggest that he led the unsuccessful coup attempt aimed against the leader.

“They got wind of it just in time. There was a clash and two people were killed. This was the foreign fighter element, some of his most trusted people”, the intelligence source reportedly said.

Over the course of the last two years, Daesh* has lost most of its territory in Syria and Iraq, resorting to hunkering in hideouts located in the remaining territories under its control.

In December 2017, Iraq officially declared the end of the war against Daesh*, and one year later US President Donald Trump announced that American troops had managed to defeat the terrorist organisation, noting that its remnants could be cleared out by regional forces.

At the same time, Turkey and Damascus are still planning to conduct operations against the remaining terrorist forces in Syria.

They probably remembered he came back to life 3 times already and figured it would be a waste of ammo.

The bizarre thing is… He used to record a lot of audio messages, allegedly been killed in a Russian air-strike then been said having actually been seriously wounded, then, months later, a single audio message surfaced, then not a single one since and this happened more than 2 years ago… I wouldn’t be too surprised if this roach was already dead for a while and, for some reason, intelligence agencies spread rumours about the jackal still being alive… There was the same bull$hit about Saddam : the real one was killed in an air strike when a JDAM was dropped… Read more »

The thing is that when you work for the Illuminati, you can expect to be stabbed in the back. According to David Livingstone’s book “Terrorism and the Illuminati “, many terrorist groups are. created and financed by Intelligence agencies. In fact, Wahabbism was created by British Intelligence. Another book, “The Secret History of the New World Order” documents that the Illuminati was created by the powerful Jesuits after the Pope outlawed their order in 1773. And, the Illuminati in turn created the Intelligence agencies. So, If you are a CIA employee, for example, you either knowingly or not, are working… Read more »

If al-Baghdadi isn’t already dead, he’s hiding in some hole, just like the Saddam’s doppelgänger that was hung in his place. At best he must have no more than 3 body-guards and they move using motorbikes or quads, added with a small commercial drone doing recon to avoid checkpoints.
