Analysis: The fate of ISIL and its global impact

Al-Baghdadi had long been a target for the US and regional security forces trying to eliminate ISIL.

    Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi announced the establishment of an Islamic caliphate in 2014.

    But the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS) group chief maintained a low profile in recent years with few audio recordings.

    ISIL still has reserves of wealth estimated at $300 million.
