The voice of ISIS strongman Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is reportedly heard on a 46-minute audio tape, Fox News reports.

The terror group leader has not been heard from since November 2016, and Russia claimed he was killed in battle, according to the news network.

It remained uncertain exactly when the tape was made, but references to certain current events appear to show it is recent.

At one point, the man believed to be Baghdadi, is heard talking about North Korean threats against Japan and the United States, Reuters reported.

"Oh soldiers of Islam and caliphate supporters everywhere, intensify the successive attacks, and include the unbelievers' media headquarters and the ideological war centers among [your] targets," a voice believed to be of al-Baghdadi said.

"Continue your jihad and blessed operations, and do not let the crusaders and apostates enjoy a good life or a pleasant living in the middle of their countries while your brothers are experiencing bombardment, killing, and destruction."

Russia said in July it was a "high probability" the ISIS leader was killed in airstrikes in Syria a month earlier, the news network said. But the Pentagon never confirmed his death.
