Daesh leader calls on fighters to free detained comrades
BEIRUT: The leader of Daesh (ISIS) has released a new alleged audio recording calling on members of the extremist group to do all they can to free Daesh detainees and women held in jails and camps. The purported audio by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is his first public statement since April, when he appeared in a video for the first time in five years.
In the 30-minute recording released Monday by a media arm of the group, the shadowy leader asked: “How can a Muslim enjoy life?” when Muslim women are held in camps he called “prisons of humiliation run by Crusaders and their Shiite followers.”
Daesh was defeated in Iraq in 2017. In Syria, it lost its last territory in March.
