Earlier in the day, the Iraqi army bombed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s convoy and the place where he was meeting with other ISIL leaders, killing and wounding several extremists. The fate of al-Baghdadi remains unknown.

CAIRO (Sputnik) — Baghdad lacks information on Iraqi Air Forces’ attack on a convoy of the Islamic State jihadist group’s leader, an Iraqi Defense Ministry spokesman told Sputnik on Sunday.

"So far, we do not have sufficient data on the bombing results. We will publish a statement as soon as we obtain the information," Yahya Abdul-Rasul said.

In September, Russia, Iran, Iraq and Syria established an intelligence sharing center in Baghdad to boost security cooperation against ISIL.
