Isis vows revenge after leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is ‘forced to give up control after he was seriously wounded in air strike’

According to The Guardian, Baghdadi is still incapacitated due to a possible spinal injury and has not resumed command.

Sources told the paper his injuries may mean he will never be able to lead Isis again, and it is now being led by senior official and deputy leader, Abu Alaa al-Afri.

One Isis member said: ‘They are planning to fight back against Europe. They want to take revenge for Baghdadi.’

    Excuse me but wasn’t this piece of pig meat reported as being, like, dead? Now it is incapacitated and has a spinal injury. I didn’t know it HAD a spine.

    So now isis is going to get really mad! As if setting people on fire, beheadings, rape, torture and other unbelievable acts of islamic “fun” isn’t enough, they intend to fight back against Europe. Should be interesting.

    The big question is can he still perform the all important imam raised index finger manoever? Without that he’s finished.

    Incapacitated is better than dead because he can’t be hailed as an inspiring martyr while he is still alive.

    As for Europe, I predict that such actions by the Islamic State will lead to greater appeasement.

      Agreed. In addition, a severely wounded leader (or soldier) takes up more resources than a dead one. And, without a first rate hospital and expert surgery, his chance of improving health are slim. This will be a demoralizing lesson for all of ISIS. They will know they have no chance if they are wounded and no 72 virgins as a quadriplegic lingering for 20 years. As summer heat arrives, many ISIS members and their captive population will die from water-borne illnesses due to know water treatment.
