The Sun reports:
SYRIAN state television has reported the leader of Islamic State Abu Bakr al-Baghadi has been killed in an air strike.
Claims suggest the world’s most wanted terrorist was blasted with heavy artillery while in the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa.
It is possible the terror chief was ‘killed’ by white phosphorus bombing campaigns lead by Coalition forces in the IS-infested region throughout last week.
Dramatic footage has emerged showing the scorching munitions showering down on to the city and setting buildings ablaze.
According to the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, 13 civilians have been killed in coalition are raids in Raqqa over the past 24 hours.
Al-Baghdadi has a £20 million bounty on his head because of his hate-filled sermons that inspired suicide attacks across Europe.
However, this is not the first time al-Baghadi has been reported dead and many experts are sceptical of the latest claims.
The death would certainly be a propaganda victory for the Assad regime as Syria’s civil war continues.
The official media wing of ISIS, Amaq, has not confirmed the news of the leader’s death.
Newly released videos appear to show US-led coalition bombers using white phosphorus-loaded munitions in densely populated areas in Syria and Iraq.
