According to media reports, the meal that was prepared for Baghdadi and three of his top commanders in Nineveh’s Be’aaj district was reportedly poisoned and the four are now suffering from “severe poisoning”.
The media reports further quote an Iraqi news agency and say that IS has launched a campaign to track down and arrest those responsible for poisoning so they can be punished.
Baghdadi few years back broke away from Al-Qaeda and formed an independent terrorist outfit call IS which is now arguably the most powerful and wealthiest jihadi organisation in the world.
