According to the doctor who was forced to treat the ISIS fighters, the men were quarantined by terror group’s leadership after they went through medical tests, confirming they had HIV.
The doctor whose identity has not be revealed further added that the men were treated at an ISIS-run hospital i the eastern-Syrian city of Al-Mayadeen.
He said the men who are mostly foreign nationals had unprotected sex with two Moroccan sex slaves.
“Most of those infected are foreign militants who had sexual intercourses with two Moroccan women. The women passed on the disease to the militants before their infection was revealed,” the doctor quoted by ARA News – a Syrian independent press agency, said.
He said “We were ordered by the group’s local leadership to transfer the infected militants to a quarantine center in the city.”
He also added that the two Moroccan women escaped to Turkey “for fear of execution by the IS”.
In order to avoid further spread of the disease, the ISIS leadership issued a decision through its Sharia Commission to run tests for AIDS on its members in Deir ez-Zor, following a state panic caused with the spread of the news.
A civil rights activist in al-Mayadeen said “IS leadership is planning to assign suicide attacks for its militants who are tested positive with AIDS.”
