Turkish Official Reveals How Baghdadi’s Wife Revealed IS Secrets


A Turkish official recently revealed that the wife of the former Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, disclosed a lot of information about the activities of the jihadist group when she was captured.

The official also revealed that Baghdadi’s wife identified herself as Rania Mahmoud, while her real name is Asma Fawzi Muhammad Al-Qubaysi.

According to a report, she was the first wife of the IS leader, who was killed in a US special forces raid in Syria last month.

Baghdadi was apprehended on June 2, 2018, in the province of Hatay, near the Syrian border, along with 10 others, including Baghdadi’s daughter, who identified herself as Leila Jabeer.

The Turkish official noted that the DNA sample of Baghdadi provided by Iraqi authorities revealed the family links.

“We discovered (the wife’s) real identity pretty quickly. At that point, she volunteered a lot of information about Baghdadi and the inner workings of ISIS,” the official said.

“We were able to confirm a lot of things that we already knew. We also obtained new information that led to a series of arrests elsewhere.”

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday revealed for the first time that she had been detained.

Erdogan while speaking with students in Ankara, said, “We caught his wife — I say this today for the first time but we didn’t make a big fuss about it”

He confirmed that Turkey had also captured Baghdadi’s sister and brother-in-law.

Erdogan condemned the United States for making a big deal of Baghdadi’s killing, saying: “They started a very big communication operation.”

The IS leader was killed in a US special forces raid carried out with the help of Kurdish fighters in the northwestern Syrian province of Idlib, just across the border from Turkey.
