Daesh fighters thought their commanding hilltop position was invincible. Then an American airstrike turned their hill into a flat piece of land.
The black flag of Daesh flies high and proud over a prominent hilltop outside of Kobane. That is until an American airstrike lands directly on top of the flag, and turns the hill into another flat spot in the Iraqi desert.
If you watch closely, you can clearly see the devastation caused by this strike. Pay special attention to the two Daesh fighters you can see on the hill. One is immediately thrown by the blast, while the second one tries to run away.
