The Pentagon said on Thursday evening that the audio recording of a terrorist leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is evidence that the latter is still alive. ”
“The US intelligence services have confirmed that the audio message attributed to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi seems authentic,” the ministry’s spokesman, Eric Bahon, was quoted as saying by the Anatolia news agency.

Last week, one of Da’ash’s websites published an audio tape saying that he had called on his followers, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, to urge his followers to “continue fighting and launch attacks against the West.”
Russia announced last July that it had killed al-Baghdadi in Syria with a massive air strike at the end of last May with a large number of terrorists in a meeting on the outskirts of Raqqa.
The United States and the Iraqi government denied the news, saying it was still hiding in the border area of ​​Iraq and Syria.
In 2011, the US State Department considered al-Baghdadi a global terrorist and allocated $ 25 million to those who gave information leading to his capture or murder.
