ISIS has released a rare audio message purportedly from leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, attempting to rally the terror group's fighters as Iraqi troops enter the key city of Mosul.

Addressing the estimated 5,000 ISIS members holed up in the city, Baghdadi says that "holding your ground in honor is a thousand times better than retreating in disgrace."

The tape, the first recording of Baghdadi released since late 2015, features the ISIS leader claiming to be "confident of victory" in Mosul, the group's Iraqi stronghold, despite being vastly outnumbered by the approaching troops.

Released by ISIS' media wing al-Furqan, the message has a vicious sectarian tone, with the animosity toward Shia Muslims and other, non-Muslim groups more pronounced than in previous recordings.
