It is a far cry from Disneyland – but these are the two theme parks that Islamic State have established to entertain children living under their tyrannical regime.
The parks, situated in the Iraqi city of Fallujah and the Syrian city of Raqqa, were reportedly opened last week to mark the celebration of Eid.
In a series of photos, young revellers appear to enjoying a series of rides – including spinning teacups, a big wheel and a miniature train line.
But their supposed enjoyment is a contrast to the bombed out scene in the background – which acts as a startling reminder of their horrific reality.
In Raqqa’s ‘Ride City’, children were seen to enjoy rides on a dangerous looking rusty swing – and an unseen bouncy castle.
The photos are just the latest in a series released by the terror group’s media wing – which is known for releasing slick, produced videos and photographs of the group’s brutal day to day actions.
