Islamic State insider who gave exact whereabouts of Baghdadi to get $25 million reward
New Delhi : An Islamic State (IS) insider who gave an exact location of the Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to the US Army will be given a reward of $25 million.
According to a report by Daily Mail, the informer, whose nationality is not known, gave the precise details about Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s final hideout.
Syrian Democratic Forces (SFD) General Mazloum Abdi said that the informer described a room-by-room layout of the terror leader’s compound on the Turkish border, including the number of guards, floor plan and tunnels, the UK news website reported, citing NBC News.
The report also added that the informer will be getting the reward amount the US had placed on Baghdadi.
He is believed to be the same individual who gave US intelligence a pair of Baghdadi’s used underwear and a blood sample at some point this year.
On Sunday, Donald Trump had announced the killing of Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi after he ran into a dead-end tunnel. “He reached the end of the tunnel, as our dogs chased him down. He ignited his vest, killing himself and three children. His body was mutilated by the blast,” Trump said.
