Two Iraqi officials and state television say an airstrike in western Iraq wounded the leader of the Islamic State group, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Pentagon officials said they had no information on such a strike or al-Baghdadi being wounded. An Interior Ministry intelligence official said the strikes wounded al-Baghdadi.
A senior Iraqi military official also said he learned in operational meetings that al-Baghdadi had been wounded. Neither knew the extent of al-Baghdadi’s apparent injuries. State television later also reported that al-Baghdadi had been wounded.
