A flag similar to the standard flow by the Islamic State, formerly ISIS, has been spotted flying above the entrance of a housing estate in East London, according to the Guardian.

The newspaper reported that the emblem was flown above the opening of the Will Crooks estate near Canary Wharf, bearing Arabic script similar to that of the jihadist group that is currently blighting Iraq and Syria, attacking ethnic minorities that don’t ascribe to the group’s violent extremist interpretation.

On Thursday, the White House said it was considering military strikes targeting the militant group in Iraq, while trying to provide humanitarian relief for the displaced minorities fleeing the slaughter.
