Members of the Royal Air Force are firing back at ISIS. The British Military writes ‘Love From Manchester’ on a missile headed for ISIS. This was after ISIS claimed responsibility for Monday’s deadly attack that happened at an Ariana Grande concert.
A photo has circulated of the missile. An RAF spokesperson has confirmed that the missile is, in fact, real.
Check it out.
‘Love From Manchester’
Per Fox News:
A photo circulated Thursday of the missile with the words “Love from Manchester” scrawled on with black marker. A spokesperson for the RAF told The Sun it was real.
“The RAF can confirm the photo was geniune,” the spokesperson said.
Members of a unit stationed in an undisclosed location in the Middle East wrote the message. On Monday a man, identified as Salman Abedi, blew himself up in the foyer of the Manchester Arena, killing 22 people and injuring 119 others. The attack targeted an event that was filled with mostly women and children.
This is not the first time a message has been printed on a missile or bomb. The tradition dates all the way back to World War 1 and it is something that has continued over the years.

Recently after the Paris attacks there were missiles that said, “From Paris, With Love.” However the validity of these were never claimed and many claim they were photoshopped.
