• US-Led Warplanes Drop Grisly Comic Over ISIS’ Capital, Warning ‘Freedom Will Come’

    Coalition warplanes dropped leaflets over Islamic State’s stronghold in Syria, depicting dead jihadis and promising freedom is coming.

    Anti-Islamic State activist in Raqqa, Abu Ibrahim Raqqawi, posted the leaflet on Twitter Saturday. Slain Islamic State militants, marked by the group’s flag, are strewn on the roadside as Kurdish fighters from the YPG militia walk victoriously down the path. Islamic State’s flag hangs upside down in the background.

    In white lettering, a two-word Arabic phrase says, “Freedom will come.”

    The U.S.-led coalition dropped leaflets over Raqqa earlier this year, depicting Islamic State recruits being fed into a meat grinder at a “Daesh Recruitment Office,” USA Today reports. Daesh is the Arabic-language acronym for Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

    Raqqa, known as Islamic State’s de-facto capital, was taken by the terror group amid the ongoing Syrian war in 2013.

    Coalition forces continue to strike Islamic State targets in Iraq and Syria, working with the Kurdish YPG to coordinate airstrikes in Syria. Although the YPG and Syrian rebels advanced within 30 miles of Raqqa, Islamic State launched offensives in the northern Syrian cities of Kobani and Hasakah to repel fighters.
