ISIS Leader to the fore: Talks about attack on Sri Lanka!

The Easter Sunday attacks on Sri Lanka is in retaliation for the defeat in the Syrian town of Baghuz, said the Islamic State leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Appearing for the first time since 2014 when he proclaimed the existence of the now collapsed caliphate in mid-2014, he claims that his intention is to take revenge for the collapse of the Islamic State.
In this video it is written in text, but not spoken by Baghdadi, is a reference to the Easter bombings in Sri Lanka.

His real name is Awad Ibrahim Al Badri and the last recording released by him was in August last year.

He has released several audio sermons in recent years, the last of which was in August last year, but America had stated that his long absence from public view had fuelled speculation that Baghdadi remained impaired from wounds or may have been killed.

However, there is no indication as to when the video had been recorded, but there is speculation that it was released in April. The US intelligence units are currently engaged in trying to confirm this, CNN reported.

Foreign media further reported that this video had been released through the terrorist organisation’s Al-Furkhan media network.
