The new bizarre weapon from ISIS: Flying condom bombs

ISIS have devised a unique strategy for dealign with the crippling Russian airstrikes destroying their group: floating condom bombs. 

ISIS are inflating condoms and attaching homemade mines to them before launching them into the sky in an effort to deter the Russian fighter jets. reports:

Here’s Sputnik with some epic sarcasm:

Left with little recourse in the face of relentless Russian airstrikes, the self-proclaimed Islamic State terrorist group has apparently resorted to a fairly unique defensive strategy.

While Sputnik cannot independently verify the authenticity of the video, it appears to show IS militants creating aerial mines out of condoms, which are then released into the skies over Idlib.

The entire arts-and-crafts project is shown, scored to look like some kind of bizarre extremist music video.

In a desperate move, the contraceptive contraptions are seemingly meant to drift into Russian bombers as they fly overhead. A clever – if fairly ineffective – strategy.

As Sputnik goes on to note, “why IS prefers condoms to simple, run-of-the-mill balloons, is unclear, but if they think a bunch of exploding rubbers are going to scare off the military, they’ve clearly never been to Fleet Week.”

At least now we know why the US has had such a hard time achieving results with 13 months of airstrikes – the condom bombs must be disrupting the operation…
