Iraqi forces claim that dozens of ISIS soldiers were trying to flee the battle zone by dressing as women
A set of photos has appeared online, showing captured IS fighters, dressed as women. The statements say that they were trying to flee the battle zone in drag.
The men shaved their moustaches and beards, put on their favorite bras and dresses and stuck some make-up on before getting in the burkas.
Apparently, the photos were shot in Baji, northern Iraq.
The Iraqi military has been continuously fighting near an oil refinery, with the help of US air strikes. Recapturing the city of Tikrit could turn the war around.
