The terror group released al-Baghdadi’s putported audio speech via Al Furqan Media on Wednesday, the SITE Group reported, throwing into doubt rumours of his death.

In the speech, al-Baghdadi reportedly calls on ISIS fanatics across the world to target the “disbeliever media centers” and headquarters of “ideological wars”.

If verified to be al-Baghdadi, the 55-minute long statement would bring the terror leader’s 11-month spell of silence, with his last known recording on September 28, 2017.

In the recording, he plays down the loss of ISIS territory in the Middle East, encouraging is acolytes to “stay steadfast and fight back with true passion for martyrdom”.

“For the Mujahideen (holy warriors) the scale of victory or defeat is not dependant on a city or town being stolen or subject to that who has aerial superiority, intercontinental missiles or smart bombs,” he said in the recording, which could not been verified.

The elusive radical Islamist preacher, nicknamed “The Ghost”, has been reported to have died on multiple occasions in airstrikes in Syria and Iraq as his terror empire crumbles.

Various reports of his death, injury or arrest have come from Iraqi security sources in recent years, yet none have been confirmed by the US-led coalition.

In the recording, al-Baghdadi references the dispute between the United States and Turkey over the detention of Andrew Brunson, meaning the message dates this month.
