ISIS releases recording of leader al-Baghdadi

Islamic State leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi has mocked the United States, called on the jihadis to rally against the Syrian regime and insisted that the ISIS "remains" despite its rapid loss of territory, while also exhorting followers to stand fast and keep fighting, in his first purported, and undated, audio communication in nearly a year.

ISIS media released a 46-minute audio message that plays a speech by Baghdadi, according to the militant group. But in it, Baghdadi makes an apparent reference to recent events including North Korean threats against Japan and United States and the recapture two months ago of Mosul by USA -backed Iraqi forces.

"Beware of retreat, or the feeling of defeat, beware of negotiations or surrender".

"With God's will and his strength, we are staying determined, patient.The abundance of killing will not stop us", Baghdadi said in the audio recording.

We'll win WAFU Cup to appease Ghanaians, say Emmanuel Lomotey
Both sides had earlier met in the group stage with Nigeria winning 2-0 to secure qualification into the semi-finals. "It won't be an easy game, they won't find it easy as well".

Shortly after the jihadists swept across swathes of Iraq in June 2014, Baghdadi appeared before thousands of faithful at Mosul's Great mosque of Al-Nuri to urge Muslims around the world to join his "caliphate" straddling Syria and Iraq. "He tries to energize his faithful, saying the lives of jihadis lost in Mosul and in Raqqa - their stronghold in Syria - should not be in vain".

The jihadist leader had not been heard from since November 2016 and Russian Federation claimed in June this year that it might have killed Baghdadi in an airstrike.

"Turkey does not dare to fight them, fearing to anger its American and European masters, so in their expectations it is an inevitable - but postponed - battle", Al-Baghdadi says.
