British Military Writes Special Message on ISIS Bound Missile: “Love From Manchester”

The members of the Royal Air Force, British military, wrote a special message for ISIS militants on a missile that quite literally has their name on it. This is in response to the deadly attack in Manchester on Monday, that killed nearly two dozen people and injured many more, at an Ariana Grande concert.

 Senator James McGrath shared the following photo of the missile on Facebook:

This photo started circulating on Thursday, after it surfaced. The missile has the words, “Love from Manchester” written in what appears to be a black market.

According to The Sun, a spokesperson from the RAF confirmed that the photo is real.

Fox News reports:

“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.

During World War II, army men wrote messages on bombs headed toward Japan after the Pearl Harbor attack. Messages were also written on bombs after the 9/11, with notes coming from New York City police and fire departments, according to the Washington Post.

Photos of missiles with the phrase, “From Paris, With Love” marked on them began to surface on Twitter following the Paris terror attacks in 2015. Many people, however, claimed the photos were photoshopped.

Here is a photo of the missiles with messages for Japan in 1945.
