Details of the letters leaked to the  Arabic newspaper states that IS leader is encouraging the fighters in Libya to be strong in fight against the enemies.

“ The war will be tough and long, I know that we are surrounded by the enemies from all sides. We should have the patient and should use all financial and spiritual means to go ahead with the war”, Baghdadi says in one of the letters.

He is not happy with the internal differences between his followers apparently and is urging them to be united in a turbulent tone. He also orders the fighters to recruit children in order to compensate the losses.

“Our fighters in Turkey and France know what to do, if we lose the contacts with them, they will handle the situation.
