article imageISIS fighters forced to become suicide bombers after getting HIV

By Owen Weldon     Aug 21, 2015 in World
ISIS fighters who have been diagnosed with HIV after contracting the virus from captured sex slaves are being forced to become suicide bombers.
There have been at least 16 ISIS militants that have been diagnosed with HIV. They were diagnosed in the Surian province of Deir ez-Zor.
The infected fighters are now at a quarantine center after contracting HIV from two Morroccan women.
An activist in Al-Mayadeen said that ISIS leadership will assign suicide attacks for fighters that have tested positive for HIV.
Most of the infected fighters come from other countries, and were not aware that the women had the infection.
As for the women, it is believed that they were scared of being executed, so they took off to Turkey.
Back in June, a fighter from Indonesia was executed by ISIS because he knowingly passed the infection onto his sex slave, who was just 15 years old. He also donated blood to a hospital that was run by the terrorist group.
A doctor said that ISIS commanders have stressed the need to check blood for HIV before it is transferred to ISIS members.
However, hospitals in Raqqa lack equipment to detect the AIDS viris. Activists said that HIV is prevalent among the terror group because many fighters are addicted to drugs, have criminal backgrounds, and swap wives and sex slaves frequently.
