Islamic State leader's son killed in operation against Russians

ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi's son, Hudhayfah Al Badri, was killed during an attack in the central Syrian province of Homs, ISIS propaganda agency Amaq said on Tuesday.

On 22 June, Badri escaped an Iraqi air force raid that killed two of his bodyguards, including Saud Mohammed al-Kurdi, also known as Abu Abdallah, who was married to Baghdadi's daughter Duaa.

"Hudayfah al-Badri. the son of the Caliph. was killed in an operation against the Nusayriyyah and the Russians at the thermal power station in Homs", the statement said.

It said 11 people were killed in the attack.

Posting the photograph of a young boy, purportedly Hudhayfah al-Badri, al-Baghdadi's son, the outlet said he lost his life in an operation against the Russian forces deployed in Homs and the Syrian government forces, referred to as Nusayriyyah by IS.

The group's leader Baghdadi, who has been pronounced dead on several occasions, remains alive in Syrian territory by the Iraqi border, an Iraqi intelligence official said in May.
