IS Leader Al-Baghdadi Demands Peshmerga to Halt War

IS leader says they will retreat from Mosul with their weapons


MOSUL The leader of the Islamic State (IS) has demanded the Peshmerga forces to cease the war against the group in Mosul.

According to a number of Iraqi news outlets, Abu Bakir al-Baghdadi, the IS leader, has sent a request to the Peshmerga forces through Arab tribal leaders in Nineveh province to halt the fight against the organization.

Baghdadi has suggested that if Peshmerga halts the fight, the IS militants will vacate Mosul and move to Syria with their weapons and money.

Peshmerga forces have recently inflicted the IS organization with severe damage and the militants' morale has waned due to the ongoing extensive operations of Peshmerga against the group. Militants have reportedly started fleeing with their families to Syria
