/TASS/, July 11. Militants of the Islamic State (IS, terror group, outlawed in Russia) have said the organization’s leader Abu Bakr al-Bahgdadi is dead, the Al Sumaria TV channel reported on Tuesday citing a source in Iraq’s Nineveh province.
According to the source, IS gunmen issued a brief statement announcing that their leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead and the name of the "new caliph."
Some Iranian media outlets earlier circulated images confirming al-Baghdadi’s death. The Russian Defense Ministry reported in the middle of June that, according to preliminary information, the IS leader and 300 gunmen had been killed by a Russian airstrike in Syria in late May.
