Baghdad (AFP) – Russian forces killed the son of Islamic State group leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in a missile attack on a Syrian cave in which he was hiding, Iraqi intelligence said Wednesday.
IS’s propaganda outlet Amaq said Hudhayfah al-Badri was killed in an “operation against the Nussayriyyah and the Russians at the thermal power station in Homs”, in a statement published Tuesday alongside a photo of a young man holding an assault rifle.
The article goes on to state the following:
Nussayriyyah is the term used by IS for the Alawite religious minority sect of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Iraq’s Falcon’s intelligence cell said Russian forces on Monday fired three missiles at a cave in Homs that held 30 “terrorist leaders” and several of Badri’s bodyguards.
It said 11 people were killed in the attack.
“Badri wasn’t even a fighter… he was an icon that was moved from one place to another as a form of psychological propoganda for the rest of the organisation,” the Falcons said on Wednesday.
