Caught on video: ISIS flag blown to bits in Syria in humongous explosion

An Islamic militant can be seen almost calmly watching the explosion, as the smoke burrows up around his legs.

Yesterday morning, an American airstrike ripped an Islamic State black jihadist banner to shreds where it had been raised over Tilsehir hill in Syria, outside of Kobane, a strategically important area near the Turkish border. A few hours later, the good guys, Kurdish resistance forces, put up their own Kurdish People’s Protection Unit (YPG) flag. 

Western Journalism posted a video below, featuring multiple explosions, and people can be heard clapping and cheering in the background. The site reports, “you can see the moment the hillside erupted into flames with one militant running for his life and another fighter engulfed by an enormous cloud of dense smoke.”

The lesson from all this? Don’t mess with the U.S.

The Kurdish resistance movement raised its triangular flag immediately afterwards.
