The Russian military says it may have killed ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi during an airstrike last month in Raqqa. A statement by Russia’s Defense Ministry says the airstrike may have killed al-Baghdadi and other ISIS fighters. Neither ISIS nor the Syrian government has commented on his possible death. There have been a number of previous false reports of al-Baghdadi’s death in the last few years.
