Nineveh - Iraqi forces are preparing to attack the leader of the so-called Islamic State (IS) as soon as his exact location is uncovered, the Iraqi Joint Special Operations Command said on Wednesday.

The Spokesperson for the Iraqi Special Operations Command, Yahya Rasul Zubaidi, who spoke to Sputnik on Wednesday, said the forces are currently trying to track down the exact location of the IS leader, Abu Bakir al-Baghdadi.

Zubaidi explained that the intelligence units are tracking the movements of Baghdadi and as soon as they detect his exact location, they will immediately conduct an attack to eliminate him.

However, the Iraqi official pointed out that Baghdadi’s location is a confidential information and whether he is in Mosul or not is something that can not be revealed publicly to the media.
