AL-MAYADEEN, Syria (CBSDC) — A new report claims that Islamic State of Iraq and Syria militants who contracted HIV from sex slaves are going to be used as suicide bombers.
The Mirror reports that 16 militants are currently being held in quarantine after being infected from two Morrocan women who have HIV.
“IS leadership is planning to assign suicide attacks for its militants who are tested positive with AIDS,” a civil rights activist in the Syrian city of al-Mayadeen told ARA News, according to The Mirror.
The activist said that the women did not know they were infected with the HIV virus before passing it on to the ISIS militants.
“We were ordered by the group’s local leadership to transfer the infected militants to a quarantine center in the city,” a Syrian doctor said, The Mirror reports.
The two women reportedly fled to Turkey for fear of being executed by the terror group.
The U.S. and its allies are conducting airstrikes against the terror group in Syria and Iraq.
