"We did not hit Raqqa that day, on Friday the 10th of June. We didn’t strike in Raqqa on that day. We did the next day, with two small strikes, but the way they [media reports] described it, we did not conduct that strike," Garver told reporters when asked about the media reports.
The US-led coalition did carry out two smaller strikes in Raqqa the next day, Garver stated.
The spokesperson stressed that he could not confirm "one way or another" if Baghdadi is alive.
The terror group’s leader Baghdadi has been reported killed or injured multiple times without any confirmation from official government sources or Daesh. He last appeared in public in 2014.
