Baghdadi's death has been rumored numerous times in the past, and it was not immediately possible to independently verify the claim. There also were no immediate announcements from the Islamic State's news channels.

The U.S. Central Command said in a statement, "We cannot confirm this report, but hope it is true."

Reinforcements are expected, Reuters reported.
