Well this one , true to the saying , has turned up , a video has been released by Daesh led al-Furqan media network of al-Baghdadi talking to some followers , the video is beleived to be fairly recent as al-Baghdadi refernces current events like the fall of their stronghold in the Iraqi town of Baghuz and the recent attack in Sri Lanka.
“The battle for Baghouz is over,” said the ISIL leader with a bushy grey beard and an assault weapon close by, sitting cross-legged on a cushion and addressing three men whose faces have been blurred.
Wearing a black robe with a beige vest, Baghdadi gave an 18-minute address.
The SITE Intelligence group said he also discussed the bombings in Sri Lanka that killed more than 250 people on Easter Sunday in an audio recording after the video ends.
“Your brothers in Sri Lanka have healed the hearts of monotheists [ISIL members] with their suicide bombings, which shook the beds of the crusaders during Easter to avenge your
brothers in Baghouz,” he said.
The guy’s like snake plissken , everyone thinks he’s dead then he shows up … Bummer.
