‘Five-star lifestyle’


isis-five-starISIS fighters in Raqqa are reported to live an elite lifestyle including eating at five-star restaurants, swimming in hotel pools, and owning luxury property and vehicles. They were also given payrises and roast lamb for the Eid al-Adha festival, and receive preferential medical treatment. Source:

As soon as they arrived, they became the elite of the community. They were given comfortable homes and cars — and they get a generous salary every month. Recently, a bombing left many people, including fighters, badly hurt. We ran to help and saw ISIS trucks arrive and remove their men for treatment, leaving the civilians just lying there.
