Leader of the DAESH terrorist organization, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has been killed in US-led coalition airstrikes on Raqqa, the terror group reportedly claimed.

Arabic media wired the report of al-Baghdadi's death, citing pro-Daesh news agency al-Amaq.

The report said that Baghdadi had been killed on Sunday morning by the coalition air operation in Syria. The coalition operation command has not made a statement so far.

The so-called official news agency of the terror group said in a statement released on behalf of Daesh, that their “Caliph” al-Baghdadi had been killed.

“Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been killed by coalition airstrikes on Raqqa on the fifth day of Ramadan,” it said.
