The Iraqi army has started using some barbaric methods of in order to hurt the moral of ISIS fighters in Mosul. They have started leaving dead bodies of ISIS militants to rot and decay in the hot sun around liberated parts of the city. They are doing not only as psychological warfare but as an insult to the dead for the sins they have committed. The best part is that it seems to be working. There are reports that foreign ISIS members have started literally calling in sick to avoid fighting. They are bringing doctor’s notes claiming that they have back issues and headaches in order to sit out for the day.
This news was found out after forces captured and raided an ISIS base of operations. They found various reports of the members claiming to be too sick to martyrdom. “He doesn’t want to fight, wants to return to France,” one note reportedly said about a 24-year-old Algerian, who is a resident of France. “Claims his will is martyrdom operation in France. Claims sick but doesn’t have a medical report.”
