ISIS Fighter Escapes Battle Zone Dressed As A Woman
Iraqi forces have captures an ISIS soldiers who dressed as women to escape a battle zone. In his bra and dress, the Islamic State fighter was seemingly in a hurry as he forgot to shave off his moustache. Iraqi forces claim he’s just one of many ISIS soldiers who have been dressing as women to escape a battle zone in the north of the country. Many have shaved off their beards and moustaches and used make-up.
Some are even pictured wearing silk bras and dresses beneath their burkas. The Arabic captions of the photo suggest that the pictures were taken in the Baiji area of northern Iraq. Regular Iraqi forces have fought an almost continuous battle around an important oil refinery there, backed up by US-led air strikes. Iraqi Defence Minister Khaled al-Obedi said the battle to recapture the key city of Tikrit could be a turning point in the war. ISIS is defending the area with roadside bombs and suicide attacks but a 20,000 force of Iraqi soldiers and militiamen continue to make gains.
