ISIS to take revenge

According to media reports, he has no longer be in control of the ISIS since the injury. It is claimed ISIS is planning to 'fight back against Europe.

Baghdadi is still incapacitated due to a possible spinal injury and has not resumed command and militant organisation is currently functioning under the leadership of former Al-Qaeda veteran Abu Alaa al-Afri.

An ISIS member said has reportedly claimed that they are planning to fight back against Europe. They want to take revenge for Baghdadi.

Last year there were two reports that Baghdadi had been wounded, but they turned out to be inaccurate.

He escaped death in December when US jets attacked a two-car convoy on the outskirts of Mosul.
His close aide Auf Abdul Rahman al-Efery was killed when a rocket fired from a war plane hit one of the cars.

Baghdadi was believed to be in the second car, which was not hit. Over 6000 militants have been killed in airstrikes carried out by British warplanes since September, 2014.

Baghdadi, 43, was the head of al-Qaeda in Iraq before founding the Islamic State in Iraq in 2010, while he was declared head of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria in 2013.

In June last year, the Islamic State declared itself a caliphate, with Baghdadi declared as its ‘Caliph' or ruler.
