ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi issued a statement acknowledging the group's defeat in Iraq, as he urged supporters to either hide or flee, Iraqi television network, Alsumaria, quoted local sources as saying.
According to the sources in the Iraqi governorate of Nineveh, Al-Baghdadi's statement was titled 'farewell speech' and was distributed among ISIS' preachers and clerics on Tuesday.
Al-Baghdadi ordered the closure of the ISIS office regulating their fighters and ordered non-Arab fighters to either return to their countries or detonate themselves, promising them "72 women in heaven."
Many of ISIS' leaders in Iraq has now fled towards the group's controlled areas in neighboring Syria, the source added.
Iraqi forces backed by international and US aid have been advancing towards ISIS-occupied areas in Iraq over the past weeks, where the terrorist organization suffered one defeat after another in Mosul.
Well, that's one way to balance the books on the pension plan...
“Al-Baghdadi ordered the closure of the ISIS office regulating their fighters and ordered non-Arab fighters to either return to their countries or detonate themselves, promising them “72 women in heaven.””
I noticed he didn’t promise 72 virgins. He figured that by now those poor 72 women would have lost their virginity a while back.
What a difference a month makes
“ordered non-Arab fighters to either return to their countries or detonate themselves”
Time to shut of travel from those countries and carefully vet. These ISIS jihadis are unlikely to ever reform. They should be killed or kept away.
Fortunately, Trump has a new executive order ready for tomorrow, just in time.
Thank God that we have a competent, pro-American President for a change.
They are just redeploying to Europe and USA.
What a difference a President makes!
I’d keep pounding their tanks and personnel vehicles with A10 ordnance.
Elections have consequences.
“These ISIS jihadis are unlikely to ever reform. They should be killed or kept away.”
No, just killed!
This headline would not exist had Hillary been elected.
“....and ordered non-Arab fighters to either return to their countries or detonate themselves, promising them “72 women in heaven.” “
Can you imagine this setting?
George Patton (Addressing Troops as Bastogne): Men it appears hopeless. I see no way that we can continue this fight. We are like the troops we came to rescue, trapped. I am asking you to return to your trucks and go home, OR OTOH if you’ve got any interest, I’M RECOMMENDING THAT YOU GO BACK TO YOUR TENTS AND BLOW YOURSELVES UP, AND BY DOING THAT YOU WILL BE ASSURED TO SEE AT LEAST 70 VIRGINS. Good bye and so long. Buglar, please play When the Saints Go Marching In.
Abu Bakr was one of the (false) Prophet Mohammed’s successors. So is this guy trying to claim some sort of apostolic mantel?
I used to have a parrot. I named him Abu Bakr because the went around parroting Mohammed.
So, Trump gets credit for killing ISIS in Iraq!
There has been so many news in the past about Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi being either killed or severely wounded that I have grown skeptical of this latest press release.
