The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has begun distributing fliers in Fallujah instructing its fighters to impersonate Iraqi military forces and commit atrocities against civilians prior to their pullout from the city, according to a coalition spokesman.

The flier, obtained by the U.S. military, translated to English and shared with reporters on Tuesday, lays out instructions in case the city is retaken by Iraqi forces.

The commands include “instruct the Mujahideens ‘holly fighters’ to dress similar to the PMF and [Iraqi Security Forces], killing civilians, torture them and film them.”
