Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the slain leader of the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group, was subjected to "sexual torture" during his time in US custody back in 2004, claims his widow.

Umm Hudaifa, currently detained in a Baghdad prison, shed light on her life alongside Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, in an interview with BBC published on Monday.

Before he was held in 2004, al-Baghdadi was “religious but not extremist” and “conservative but open minded,” Umm Hudaifa said who is currently under investigation in an Iraqi jail for her ties to Daesh.

On a misty November morning 21 years ago, I was desperately trying to remain camouflaged. Concealed in the foliage of an orange grove in Israel’s rural Galilee, I hurriedly took photos of a drab concrete building not marked on any map.

Even the original road sign identifying the site as Facility 1391 had been removed after a local Haaretz newspaper investigation revealed it housed a secret prison.

Lebanon's Hezbollah and the Islamic Resistance in Iraq have conducted separate operations against Israeli military positions in the 1948 occupied territories in support of Palestinians amid the genocidal war on Gaza.

Lebanon’s al-Mayadeen television reported that Hezbollah fighters launched a volley of shells at three buildings housing Israeli troops in the Even Menachem moshav in the Western Galilee and the projectiles struck the designated targets precisely.

The Islamic Resistance in Iraq (IRI), an umbrella group of Iranian-backed armed factions, launched on May 20 three more drone attacks against Israel in response to the ongoing war on the Palestinian enclave of the Gaza Strip.

In three separate statements, the IRI said it struck two “vital targets” in the southernmost Israeli city of Eilat as well as a drone base of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) in the occupied Syrian Golan Heights. The group released a single video showing the launch of what appears to be an Iranian-made Shahed-101 at the Golan.

The Islamic Resistance in Iraq says it has fired advanced cruise missiles at vital targets in the Israeli-occupied territories in retaliation for the massacres committed by the Zionist regime against civilians in Gaza. 

The resistance, which is an umbrella group of anti-US and anti-Israel factions, said in a statement it hit vital targets in the areas of Ariha Valley, also known Jericho, and the Nevatim Airbase using Arqab cruise missiles.

The Islamic Resistance in Iraq (IRI), an umbrella group of Iranian-backed armed factions, launched eight drone and missile attacks against Israel within 24 hours.

On May 9, the IRI announced in separate statements that it had attacked Ashkelon oil port with an Arqab cruise missile and launched drones at Nevatim air base, a “vital target” in Eilat city, Yafalet base, Leviathan naval gas rig and Ovda air base. Video footage showing the attacks on Ashkelon and Nevatim were released.
