ISIS releases recording of leader al-Baghdadi

The Islamic State on Thursday released an audio recording of its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has re-emerged in a new voice recording released on social media on Thursday calling his followers to be "patient and strong".

The latest recording reportedly makes mention of the U.S.'s escalating conflict with North Korea and Turkey-Russia-Iran-mediated peace talks to end the Syrian conflict.

Since Baghdadi proclaimed the caliphate stretching across Iraq and Syria in 2014, Iraqi forces have retaken a string of cities in western and northern Iraq including Mosul, where Baghdadi made his announcement from the city's El Nuri mosque. The voice in the tape sounded much like previous recordings of the reclusive ISIS leader, the Associated Press said in a report from Cairo. He also sought to console his followers over their recent defeats, saying the top priority for Muslims is to "satisfy" God.

In June, Russian defence officls had said that there was a "high probability" that Baghdadi died in a Russian airstrike on the outskirts of the Syrian city of Raqqa.

In July, Moscow said it was struggling to confirm if Baghdadi was dead or alive, a month after reporting his possible demise in an air strike near the ISIS stronghold of Raqa in Syria.

Western-backed Syrian forces are also thrusting into the eastern Syrian city of Raqqa, Islamic State's operational headquarters from where it plotted numerous attacks that have killed hundreds of people around the world.
