Turkey captures wife of slain ISIS leader, al-Baghdadi

 

  Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has stated that his country's forces have captured one of the four wives of the slain leader of the Islamic State group, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, days after it captured the elder sister, Rasmiya Awad. 

Erdogan made the announcement while delivering a speech in the capital of Ankara, in which he also criticised the United States for making a fuss over the killing of Baghdadi.

“The United States said Baghdadi killed himself in a tunnel. They started a communication campaign about this. But, I am announcing it here for the first time: We captured his wife and didn’t make a fuss like them. Similarly, we also captured his sister and brother-in-law in Syria” Erdogan said.
