Baghdadi rose to prominence in ISIL after his detainment with Al Qaeda commanders at the American Camp Bucca, in Iraq.
He would become directly involved in ISIL’s atrocities and human rights violations including the genocide of Yazidis in Iraq, extensive sexual slavery, organized rape, floggings, and systematic executions.
He directed terrorist activities and massacres as well as embracing brutality as part of the organization’s propaganda efforts, producing videos displaying sexual slavery and executions via hacking, stoning, and burning.
Back in October, Baghdadi killed himself by detonating a suicide vest during the Barisha raid, killing two children in the process.
On October 31 2019, ISIL confirmed that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was dead, and named Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurashi as his replacement.
