Al-Baghdadi sends message to boost his caliphate fighters’ morale
Islamic State has released a new message reportedly from its leader, claiming that his caliphate is doing well despite the US-led alliance against it.
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi says, in the 24-minute audio, posted Saturday, airstrikes by the international coalition only increase ISIS’s determination and resolve. He also throws cynicism at the lately announced Saudi-led Islamic alliance against terrorism and warns Israel that his caliphate fighters are getting closer to it day by day.
“Israeli Jews will hide behind trees and stones from Isis.” He said, urging Muslims the world over to join the fight, saying it is their Islamic duty to rise up everywhere.
