Russian Mod is claiming in a Russian airstrike on Raqqa they killed Al-Baghaddi....

BUT no gun camera or drone footage to back this claim up with...

BREAKING: US-led coalition says there is no way to confirm Russian claim it may have killed ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi

Seriously doubt the claim as Baghdadi has been rumored to have left Raqqa weeks ago....and since the man works only face to face and via paper notes and personal couriers seriously doubt Russia could pinpoint his location...

He survived fives years of US prison at Bucca and has survived to now .....seriously doubt he lets the Russians know where he is....
