Iraqi state media has reported that 45 ISIS militants died after eating poisoned food during an Iftar dinner, which is celebrated during the annual Ramadan fasting.
Haaretz reported that 145 ISIS fighters participated in the meal and 45 of them died shortly after, noting that the attack took place in Mosul, Iraq, which was been controlled by ISIS for more than a year.
Whether the poisonings were intended or by accident has yet to be confirmed.
However, this may not have been the first time ISIS reportedly suffered casualties as a result of poisoned food.
The Mirror reported last November an attack involved members of the Syrian Free Army infiltrating ISIS with poison. Rebel soldiers posed as chefs and poisoned dozens of ISIS militants at the Fath El-Sahel camp in Syria.
Although, multiple outlets have since questioned the legitimacy of the original report, stating that the same story may have been recycled over the past months.
Even if the poisoning of the militant’s group food isn’t a recurring event, it should be. Hopefully rebels can continue to infiltrate ISIS and send some of the bloodthirsty killers to the underworld in which they belong.
Meanwhile, Obama continues to do nothing to eliminate this barbarian group of murderers.
