ISIL leader Al-Baqdadi leaves Iraq for Syria

TEHRAN (FNA)- The leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorist group, Abu Bakr Al-Baqdadi, has left Iraq’s Al-Anbar province for Syria’s Al-Reqqa province, informed sources in Iraq said Saturday.

Eye witnesses in the Western parts of Al-Anbar said that Al-Baqdadi and his forces in a convoy of 50 vehicles have moved towards Al-Reqqa on Saturday.

Last month, a Takfiri terrorist wrote on his Twitter account that Al-Baqdadi had been injured during army’s operations in Syria.

Al-Baqdadi was injured during the operations of the Syrian army’s Division 17 in Al-Reqqa city, Twitter account-holder Al-Towhid Institute wrote on his Twitter account.

The conflict in Syria started in March 2011, when sporadic pro-reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following the intervention of western and regional states.

The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle-East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.

As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government has boosted its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.

Washington has remained indifferent to warnings by Russia and other world powers about the consequences of arming militant groups.
