The Royal Air Force Wrote Special Message to ISIS on Bomb

BY:

A photograph of a Royal Air Force bomb with a message to the Islamic State has been widely circulating on social media.

The photo depicts a Paveway IV bomb with "Love From Manchester" written on the side, according to the Telegraph.

The message written on the side of the bomb was likely referencing the suicide bombing attack that occurred in Manchester on Monday night.

The United Kingdom's Royal Air Force responded to those questioning the authenticity of the picture, saying, "The RAF can confirm the photo was genuine."

"The sentiment of the message written on the weapon is understandable and such writing has history in the RAF, so the individual concerned will not be taken to task," an RAF source said.

The bomb was being flown on a mission conducted out of RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus.
