IS Leader Al-Baghdadi No Longer Has a Leading Role

ERBIL – The Islamic State (IS) has limited the role of its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and sent a 12-member leadership council to the Syrian territories under the name of “negotiating committee” to practically lead the extremist organization, informed Syrian sources said on Sunday.

The founder of the Euphrates Post, Ahmad al-Ramadan, told Asharq Al-Awsat on Sunday that the IS leader Baghdadi has recently been used only as IS’ image, while the actual leadership of the extremist group in Syria and Iraq is in the hands of a 12-member council that plans and orders everything related to the group’s activities.

Ramadan further denied the reports from last week saying that Baghdadi has been killed in an airstrike in the Syrian city of Raqqa. The news came days after the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) backed by the US-led coalition launched a massive offensive against the extremist group in Raqqa, the group’s the de facto capital city in Syria.
