Not even ISIS commanders can escape online ridicule.
Feared ISIS commander Abu Wahib, who has appeared in a number of the terrorist group’s propaganda photos and has a notable unibrow, was pictured (above) in odd-colored military fatigues.
He was subsequently mocked by Twitter users for looking like a doner kebab.
Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently noticed the striking similarity and posted it online, reported MailOnline. The activist group is based in the ISIS stronghold city of Raqqa, Syria, and uploads accounts of ISIS’s brutality.
Wahib is the leader of the Al-Anbar Lions group based in central Iraq. He has a black beard, long hair, a unibrow, and currently has a $500,000 bounty on his head.
He has been made fun of in the past, with anti-ISIS activists posting Photoshopped images of him with make up and fake eyebrows.

Wahib was on death row in an Iraqi prison before he escaped in a 2012 inmate riot that was led by members of al-Qaeda in Iraq.
In 2014, he was seen in a video that was uploaded online that showed him executing three Syrian truck drivers.
Meanwhile, on Friday, a group claiming to be a Yemeni branch of ISIS, known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, says it carried out a string of suicide bombings in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, that killed a total of 137 people and injured 345 others.

The group posted an online statement saying that five suicide bombers carried out what it described as a “blessed operation” against the “dens of the Shiites.” The bombers attacked the Badr and al-Hashoosh mosques, located across town from each other, during midday Friday prayers.
The claim, posted in an online statement, could not immediately be independently confirmed and offered no proof of an IS role. It was posted on the same website in which the Islamic State affiliate in Libya claimed responsibility for Wednesday’s deadly attack on a museum in Tunisia.
