Isis: Al-Baghdadi nær myrdet i internt oprør

Ifølge The Guardian forsøgte Isis-fremmedkrigere fra Tunesien og Marokka et kup imod Isis-lederen Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Kuppet mislykkedes og oprørerne blev henrettet. Guardian skriver:

A senior military official from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), the Kurdish-led force battling Isis, said other members of Isis’ foreign region had joined the fight, including Algerians and Moroccans. “It was a really tough clash and they excommunicated the losers,” said an SDF commander at the Baghouz frontline, who uses the nom de guerre Adnan Afrini. “It started in mid-September and it was a very serious attempt to kill or capture him. We don’t think he is in the town now.”

Hamdan said Baghdadi and his guard force had been in the area for almost six months before fleeing. “He tried to keep a low profile and didn’t travel through town with them but we all knew where they were. He used an old red Opal car.”
