BAGHDAD, April 3 (Xinhua) -- The Iraqi army on Wednesday dropped leaflets over Anbar's provincial capital Ramadi, offering a reward for intelligence about Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the top leader of Islamic State (IS) group, a local official told Xinhua.
"The leader of Daesh (IS group) and his fighters stole your land and killed your people, and now he is hiding in safety away from the death and destruction that he planted. With your intelligence reports, you can avenge," the leaflets said, providing two hot lines on WhatsApp.
The leaflets offered 25 million U.S. dollars for anyone who provides information leading to the arrest of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
In March, the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces announced the defeat of IS militants in eastern Syria, but the fate of the top leader of the extremist IS group is still unknown.
