A representative of the Democratic Party of Kurdistan in Mosul, Said Mamuziny, told that the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has escaped the Iraqi city of Mosul as the fall of the city nears. According to him, Al-Baghdadi has allegedly fled to the Syrian border. Presumably he is in the area between Deir ez-Zor and the Iraqi border.
Other terrorists are also fleeing the city, herewith many emirs of ISIS managed to kill.
As reported, some mix with the local population and try to sneak out from the city. There are those who manage to escape to Syria. When government forces liberate new quarters in the city, the terrorists shave their beards, dress in civilian clothes and flee.
Before fleeing Mosul, the terrorists destroy all documents and papers relating to the activities of the organization.
