ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has appeared in a new video for the first time in nearly five years and has vowed to get revenge for his dead militants.
The leader of the Islamist group gave his last sermon at the Great Mosque in Mosul, Iraq, in July 2014.
He has not appeared in a video since announcing the creation of the so-called caliphate from the pulpit of the mosque nearly five years ago in a clip played around the world.
The elusive chief appeared for the first time in the propaganda video released today by the jihadist organisation. It showed the haggard militant, looking gaunt with a greying beard, compared to his black facial hair in 2014.
