Baghdadi Accepts Defeat But His ‘Farewell Speech’ Can Trigger Terrorist Attacks Across The World

Published on 2 March, 2017 at 10:43 pm By

Reports emerging from the besieged city of Mosul in Iraq reveal that the chief of Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has acknowledged defeat.

Baghdadi has also issued a statement, which his barbaric followers are circulating as a ‘farewell speech’, urging only the non-Arab fighters to either detonate themselves or go back to their countries and wage war there.

The message promises the terrorists “72 virgins in heaven”.

Quoting an Iraqi TV network, Alsumaria, Al-Arabiya reports that Baghdadi’s speech was released at a time when the US-backed Iraqi army continues to tighten its control over the final bastions of ISIS in Mosul.

It is still not clear whether Baghdadi is alive or dead because no one has seen him since his last appearance in July 2014.

In December 2016, the Pentagon had said that it believed Baghdadi was alive. A former emir of the Islamic State had earlier this year said that the ‘Caliph’ was now a “figment of imagination“.

The self-proclaimed Caliph has been reportedly injured on multiple occasions, including in the last one that happened at Al-Ba’aj. However, none of the reports were officially confirmed.

Baghdadi’s ‘farewell speech’ can trigger a wave of terror attacks across the world.

Many Islamic State terrorists have either fled to Syria or are believed to have returned to the countries they came from through the European migration route.

Islamic State has been claiming responsibility for attacks on many European cities in the last three years, including the 2015 Paris Attacks and the 2016 Bastille Day Attack.

Other than Europe, Islamic State barbarians have been killing people from Pakistan to United States.

The Iraqi forces have been fighting in Mosul since October 17 retaking the city little by little. Once Mosul falls, it would mark the end of Islamic State in Iraq. The theater would then move to Syria, where ISIS has another ‘capital’, Raqqa.
