    ISIS has released what it says is a new video message from its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi for his first video appearance in five years. In the video, a man who is referred to as Baghdadi sits on the ground beside an assault rifle. He says the "battle for Baghouz is over." Baghouz was the last town held by ISIS in eastern Syria and was liberated from the terror group in late March, which was said to mark the collapse of the group's so-called Caliphate. In the video, the man praised recent bombings in Sri Lanka, which killed more than 250 people, Benjamin Netanyahu's election victory in Israel, the resignation of Algeria's president Abdelaziz Bouteflika, and the fall of Sudan's president, Omar al-Bashir. Baghdadi was last seen speaking at the Great Mosque in Mosul in July 2014.
