It certainly wouldn’t surprise me if this was from the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Perhaps Allah will save them from it if he can:
EXPRESS – The self-declared Islamic State capital is currently in the throes of an epidemic and a number of members of the Islamic State have reportedly been infected.
Efforts are reportedly being made to prevent the further spread of the Leishmaniasis skin disease, which is highly virulent, in the IS stronghold.
Although organisations began work to combat the disease, this became impossible after IS is claimed to have closed down their city offices.
The first case of the disease, which is caused by protozoan parasites, was discovered in September 2013.
By the middle of 2014 500 people had been affected, according to a network of activists ‘Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently.’
The disease is spread by flies that are attracted by the rubble and rubbish of war.
It can sometimes be fatal and can also cause significant damage to parts of the body it affects.
More than 2,500 cases have been recorded in the north-east of Raqqa.
