ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Denying reports that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been arrested in Syria, the Russian Foreign Ministry told Rudaw they do not have knowledge of the news and were not aware of his arrest.

“We are not aware of the arrest of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, caliphate of the Islamic State, and have not received any information or clarification on this regard,” staff of the ministry’s media office told Rudaw.

Russian media had earlier reported that the European Department for Security and Information (DESI) had announced reports that they had received intelligence information that Baghdadi had been arrested in coordination between Russian and Syrian government intelligence agencies.

We have heard this sort of thing too many times. But, in any case, Baghdadi is unimportant. The source is the Quran and the Hadiths.

Breaking no news. Russian media don't check sources and even create their own news. E.g. Russian media showed at least four conflicting theories of how passenger plane MH17 crashed. All nonsense is allowed, as long as the Putin regime is not criticized.

The men and women of MI5 are delighted to hear of Abu Bakr Al-Husseini Al-Qurashi Al-Baghdadis arrest. And we welcome the news of his execution like Saddam in Iraq.

As long as the PKK is there Turkey has the right to defend themselves. PKK is a parasite against the Kurds.
