Syrian President Bashar Assad in an interview denied reports of the capture of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of.

Axar.az reports that "That's not true. Anyway, those borders are under the control of ISIS till this moment, it's neither Syrian nor Russian, not even Western or American or any other one; it's only ISIS who's controlling those borders, so it's safe for al-Baghdadi to be in that area," Assad said.

A number of media outlets earlier reported that al-Baghdadi had been detained in Syria near the border with Iraq. This information has not been officially confirmed.

The civil war in Syria has been lasting for around six years with government troops fighting against numerous opposition factions and terror organizations such as al-Nusra Front and ISIS, outlawed in Russia.
