ISIS fighters have launched a bid to stop multi-million pound military drones spying on them – by covering whole streets with sheets in their Syrian stronghold.
The terror group has ordered its beleaguered residents in Raqqa to help create the make-shift shield after becoming increasingly fearful of the threat posed by the unmanned aircraft.
Pictures show sheets stretched out between buildings in the city’s narrow streets in an attempt to create cover for the extremists.
The images were released by the activist group Raqqa is being Slaughtered Silently, which reported that the sheets were put up to ‘prevent drones from targeting (ISIS) fighters.’
Military drones, such as the US MQ-9 Reaper, cost up to $17million and are capable of carrying out high-altitude surveillance and airstrikes.
