Many Terrorists' Heads Killed in Iraqi Airstrike Target ISIS Military Convoy

A number of senior leaders in ISIS have been killed in an air strike after the Iraq's Air Force claimed to have hit a military convoy carrying the terrorist’s leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in Iraq.

A military statement had earlier claimed the strike had taken place in the Iraqi province of Anbar but admitted it was unclear if al-Baghdadi had been killed. 

Local residents and several hospital sources told Reuters that the ISIS leader was not among the casualties from the convoy air strike.

It is thought Iraqi jets targeted the convoy as it was travelling for a meeting close to the Syrian border in Western Anbar today.

The location of the meeting was also targeted by the Iraqi Air Force, who claimed 'many of the group's leaders were killed and wounded'.

Iraq's defence ministry spokesman has reportedly confirmed that it is unclear if the convoy was definitely carrying al-Baghdadi at the time.

Despite the shocking rumours, ISIS supporters have said on Twitter today that even if the group's leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has been killed, his self-proclaimed caliphate will survive.
