Going nuts: ISIS tweets favorite desserts
Several pictures, which portrayed fighters holding jars of the Italian treat, emerged on Twitter
Militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) have recently opened up about their sweet tooth for the chocolate hazelnut spread Nutella, British daily news website the Daily Mail reported Thursday.
Several pictures, which depict apparent fighters holding jars of the Italian treat inside supermarkets, emerged on Twitter, sparking controversy.
On twitter user @AbarnardNYT wrote: “ It’s nice to know that my kids are eating the same snack as French jihad tourists.”
@Dutchman, another twitter user, said: “Funny. He found it in a supermarket. btw. Is he sure that it is not jewish food for on his sandwiches?”
Another user, @FATCAed, questioned if “an embargo on Nutella or Chupa Chups” could “destroy the morale of #ISIS mercenaries.”
As ISIS militants continue to expand across northern Iraq, the group, or members associated with it, has fortified its presence on social media.
It is not the first time that ISIS fighters have used the social media platform.
Last week, many fighters who said they were from the group mourned the loss of comedy great Robin Williams and revealed that they too were fans of his Hollywood blockbuster Jumanji.
