ISIL leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi Flees to Syria after Sustaining Injury in Iraqi Army Attack

13930403000270_PhotoI-1-300x175The leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi has fled to Syria after he was injured during the Iraqi army’s heavy bombardments of ISIL positions in Al-Anbar province in the Western parts of Iraq, media reports said.
Al-Baghdadi was injured in the Iraqi army’s air raid in Western Al-Anbar province.
Al-Anbar Province is Iraq’s largest governorate in Iraq. Encompassing much of the country’s Western territory, it shares borders with Syria, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia. The provincial capital is Ramadi, and other important cities in the province include Fallujah and Haditha.
ISIL leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, who was a detainee at US Bucca prison in 2005, has announced himself as the caliph of the Muslim world.
On Sunday, Baghdadi appointed Abdul Salam al-Ordoni, as emir for Lebanon and set up camps to train militants to be sent to the country for terrorist attacks.
Ordoni was reportedly behind explosions carried out by two Saudi individuals at Beirut’s Duroy Hotel, in which a dozen people were injured.
ISIL is a Takfiri extremist group which has its roots in the insurgency against the US-led invasion on Iraq in 2006, and was later developed to a bigger group in Syria in 2012.
The group is known to be responsible for mass murders and extremist acts of violence across Syria and Iraq.
On 4 October 2011, the US State Department listed al-Baghdadi as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist and announced a reward of $10 million for information leading to his capture or death.
