ISIL ISIS Road Sign liberated from Raqqah in Syria
A very rare ISIL ISIS road sign liberated from Raqqah in Syria. Islamic militants would paint over the street signs with their logo so you knew you were entering their space. This large 40 x 58 inch metal sign was captured by YPG fighters in 2017 just before Raqqah fell and retained as a war trophy by a US Special Operations soldier. The sign retains some of its reflective tape and the original finish shows through in worn spots.
For sale or trade for US Airborne and Special Forces artifacts, vintage watches, collectible firearms or? It is very large and heavy and is available for pick up only.
The full story on this war trophy and others I have will have to wait due to the highly sensitive nature of the missions conducted there.
If you’re near Fayetteville, North Carolina anytime soon, call and stop by my store to see this and other Global War On Terror war trophies I can’t share on a public forum.
Thanks for looking.
ISIL variant Flag
The “flag of ISIL” with the “seal of Muhammad” design banned in a number of nations, including Germany.
The variant used by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, and before that by Al-Shabaab (since c. 2006) depicts the second phrase of the shahada in the form of a depiction of the supposedly historical seal of Muhammad. The white circle represents the seal, enclosing the three words, الله رسول محمد (allāh[i] rasūl[u] muḥammad[un] “of Allah is the prophet Muhammad”). This word order is different from the second part of the conventional form of the shahada, ”muḥammad[un] rasūl[u] allāh[i] (“Muhammad is the prophet of Allah”).
