Wheel of terror: Daesh members enjoy amusement park in Raqqa
Daesh (ISIS) members have a penchant for violence, rape and pillage. And now they appear to be fans of amusement parks too. On Thursday, the anti-Daesh NGO Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently tweeted a video of members of the group apparently at an amusement park in their capital of Raqqa, Syria.
The video shows Daesh members in what appears to be a ferris wheel, laughing and having a good time. They claim to be in “the state of Raqqa,” and are speaking Syrian Arabic as they ride through the night sky.

Most of the replies to the tweet blasted Daesh, calling them “rats,” “terrorists” etc.
While they appear confident in the video, Daesh has suffered setbacks in Syria this summer, particularly against the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) around Raqqa.
