ISIS fighters are reportedly shaving their beards and dressing up as women in order to flee Syria, in the wake of Russia stepping up its military campaign in support of President Bashar al-Assad.
Pictures said to have been taken near Aleppo last week shows mounds of what looks like cut off facial hair, alongside discarded packets of razors.
In order to cross the border to Turkey undetected, ISIS jihadists are said to be shaving and disguising themselves in niqabs – a veil covering all but the eyes worn by some muslim women.
The reports of fleeing Islamic State jihadists comes as at least 40 members of the group were killed in an airstrike in Hama, west-central Syria on Sunday.
The images were shared on Twitter by the Sunday Times journalist Hala Jaber, who credited Leith Abou Fadel, editor-in-Chief of the English-language Arabic news website Al-Masdar News, as the source.
Ms Jaber posted the images with the caption: ‘Photo apparently showing left over beards shaved off by rebels running 4m #Syria’
A second set of images was captioned: ‘Jihadi beards, shaved off in Reef #Aleppo, as they flee clean shaven 2 #Turkey’.
The images have been shared by hundreds of Twitter users, with many responding by mocking ISIS and highlighting the hypocrisy of the ‘holy warriors’ fleeing in the face of danger.
