With every passing day, the once dreaded Islamic State is being obliterated from Mosul, the city from which Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi declared his Caliphate in 2014.
As the coalition forces led by Iraqi Army and backed by the US gains ground the Islamic State have suffered heavy losses.
With them facing an almost certain defeat, many of the remaining ISIS fighters are trying to flee the city to places like Raqqa, the Syrian stronghold of the terror group.
Many are dressing up as women to escape scrutiny and arrest by Iraqi forces. This came to light after the resurgent Iraqi army arrested many burqa-clad men trying to flee the city.
The Iraqi army has now shared an image of what they claim as ISIS fighters arrested while trying to flee, disguised as women.
One of the images shows an ISIS fighter with a heavy makeup, plucked eyebrows, mascara, foundation and red lipstick. But there was some problem… he forgot to shave his thick facial hair.
Another set of the image showed men wearing the veiled full-length dress, with some even having padded bras to make them look like women!
Islamic State fighters dressing up as women to flee conflict zones is nothing new, they have used the same trick in the past too.
