The leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, have broken his 11-month silence with a long audio message. In his last audio records, he mocks the United States, calls on jihadis to rally against the Syrian regime and insists that ISIS ‘remains’ despite its rapid loss of territory.

A spokesman with the US Office of the Director of National Intelligence told CNN: “We are aware of the audio tape purported to be of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and we are working to examine it. While we have no reason to doubt its authenticity, we don`t have verification at this point.”
