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.’
