Iraqi intel locates ISIS leader’s hideout near Palmyra

Iraq intelligence sources told Russian media on Sunday that, according to their information, the Islamic State’s “caliph” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is hiding at Jabal Abu Raimin, a small village in the Syrian Desert near Palmyra. He recently launched a fresh offensive to capture the old city of Palmyra, on the assumption that the Russian and Syrian air forces would hold back from counter-attacking for fear of damaging the ancient town’s historic sites.

    Why put here this scabrous name of a caliph and as a consequence stain the waves of the Internet with this terrible dirt?

    Because it is hilarious that the great self-styled C who is the foremost leader for M (pbuh) now controls nothing but a cellar in a small village.

    Gosh,
    Never in my life have I cheered for the Russians to destroy a village,
    But if Daesh, and Its adherents are in a cellar there,
    Well I guess I’ll need the Team T-shirt
    Go Fight, Win
