BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 A.M.) – The leader of the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) terrorist organization Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi was allegedly photographed inside a U.S. armored vehicle in eastern Syria, the Turkish publication Yeni Safak said on March 11th.
There is no way to confirm whether or not Yeni Safak’s photo is actually of Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi; however, they claimed the terrorist leader is working with the CIA.
A source in Damascus told Al-Masdar that the photo is most likely not Al-Baghdadi.
Furthermore, Yeni Safak alleged that the CIA gave new passports to at least 140 members of the Islamic State in Syria.
Yeni Safak claims the newly established camps for the captured Islamic State fighters were visited by British, French, and Israeli military personnel.
Neither the U.S. Coalition nor the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have commented on these new allegations from Yeni Safak.
These allegations by Yeni Safak come at the same time the U.S. Coalition and the Syrian Democratic Forces storm the Islamic State’s last enclave in the eastern region of the Euphrates River Valley.
Please note: Al-Masdar cannot verify the validity of these claims
