A missile reading "From Paris, with love" has been sent to wreak havoc on ISIS strongholds. This emotive image was taken of US Military planes which were ready to join strikes on the terrorists who have claimed responsibility for Friday night's assault on the French capital.
The Paris terror attacks were, President Francoise Hollande told his people, "an act of war". And swift retribution came soon afterwards, as the French dropped 20 bombs on an ISIS stronghold in Raqqa, Syria, on Sunday night.
The unverified images of the missile said to be Syria-bound were shared on social media, and said to be a memorial for the 129 killed on Friday. The Hellfire missiles were written on by persons unknown, but the act is in a tradition held by the US military since World War Two.
The images show messages written in black marker pen and also made out of white tape.
Following the terror attacks, the UK government has announced that up to 2,000 extra spies are to be recruited to already-stretched intelligence services. Dozens of SAS and SBS troops will be seconded to Scotland Yard's Counter Terror Command and form part of a rapid response unit to deal with any terror attacks on our shores. And surveillance experts from the secretive Special Reconnaissance Regiment will help the CTC track and apprehend those plotting to launch deadly strikes.
