Islamic State fighters are being attacked by a debilitating skin disease called leishmaniasis.

The disease, which is spread by sandflies, is quickly spreading thanks to pollution and poor hygiene conditions and there have been more than 100,000 cases reported, British media outlets reported earlier this week.

The jihadi fighters are refusing medical treatment which has led to more outbreaks, according to the reports.

Medical centers have closed since medical staff have fled the violence making the spread of the disease more acute, according to the reports.

Dubbed “Rose of Jericho,” the disease is caused by protozoan parasites that belong to the genus Leishmania and is transmitted by the bite of female sand fly that bite infected rodents called rock hyraxes…

They DO want to return to the 7th century so this may not be bad news.

    This could not happen to a more deserving group of scumbags…

      No indeed.

      More proof that God exists. He’s just a sneaky bastard is all.

    It’s being spread by Israeli robot sparrows.

    Just thought I’d put that out there.

      Thanks for that tip!

    Even though hyraxes look like woodchucks, they are not rodents, but are related to badgers.

    Drink more camel piss — it cures everything out in the sand zone.

    I’m afraid most here have run out of shits to give.

    Fascinating! This was how The Black Death infected and wiped out a good chunk of the European population in Medieval times.

      We can always hope, darls. BTW, wasn’t there an article recently talking about the flesh-eating disease attacking these a**holes? Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of savages if it’s true. 🙂

        Wasn’t aware of this, but another good reason they shouldn’t be let back in to the countries they left.

    Parasites attacking parasites.

    left untreated this is a really nasty disease. camel piss might not be enough.

      Maybe they can rub camel shit on themselves, too??? 😉

    ‘The sores can cause permanent, ugly scars if untreated. ‘

    Especially since members of seventh-century-loving ISIS are not likley to seek modern treatment.

  • eMan14

    True poetic justice.

  • Barrington Minge

    Ho ho ho, and all the more reason not to let these filthy sand rats back into the civilised world.

  • David Murrell

    ISIS militants suffering from leishmaniasis. I am all broken up over this news.
