What does #ellatehin mean?
#ellatehin is a phrase in Arabic used by one of Iraq’s PMU fighters nicknamed Abu Azrael (the Angel of Death).
The word ‘ella’ means ‘unless’ in Arabic and the word ‘tehin’ means ‘flour’. In one of the vidoes showing Abu Azrael preparing to fight against ISIS, he made a promise to the world:
“We won’t let ISIS go unless (we grind them to) flour”
