IS leader 'probably still alive' claims U.S. army commander

Bulgaria The Leader of ISIS is Still Alive

The Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is probably still alive and planning a last stand in the middle Euphrates valley, according to the latest coalition military assessments. Townsend said US -backed and Kurdish-led Syrian forces have recaptured about half of Raqqa in ongoing fighting. "There are also some indicators in intelligence channels that he's alive".

In fact, Viktor Ozerov, the head of defence committee had told Interfax: "I think this information is close to 100 per cent".

Last June, the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said senior IS leaders in Syria's Deir Ezzor had said that Baghdadi was dead.

The city had become the next target of the US-backed war on the jihadist group following the capture of Mosul, where it had declared its "caliphate" over parts of Iraq and Syria in 2014. Townsend elaborated that the USA would likely not go to the "trouble to try to capture him", adding "when we find him, I think we'll probably just try to kill him first".

But the USA -led coalition has expressed caution for months, citing a lack of evidence. "It has to reach out, reconcile, bring all Iraqis together and be the government of all Iraqis". He said such talks are under way.

The coalition said in a statement that during July, it had investigated 37 reports of civilian casualties. After being pressed repeatedly he exclaimed "I don't have a clue".

There have been several previous reports of Baghdadi's death.

He credited the Trump administration with putting greater trust in him and other commanders to execute the counter-IS campaign. "And I don't know of a commander in our armed forces that doesn't appreciate that".

"We have had a lot of experience in combat".
