US-LED AIRDROPS SHOWER LEAFLETS OVER ISIS TERRITORY

Fox News on July 19, 2015, reported that the U.S.-led coalition dropped new leaflets over the de facto capital of the Islamic State group in Syria, promising those below that “freedom will come” to the region according to anti-Islamic groups. Excerpts below

The leaflets had drawings showing dead extremists and their flag turned upside down. Four fighters with the main Kurdish militia, the People’s Protection Units, or YPG, walked down a street in the picture, with two words in Arab below: “Freedom will come.”

The latest leaflet drop comes as YPG fighters have been advancing in northern Syria as close as 50 kilometers (30 miles) north of Raqqa.

Coalition warplanes have dropped such leaflets in the past. One previous had a cartoon showing masked Islamic State extremists at a “hiring office” feeding people into a meat grinder.

The Islamic State group holds about a third of Syria and neighboring Iraq in its self-declared “caliphate.”
