At least 45 ISIS militants have been killed after consuming poisoned meal prepared to break Ramadan fast, reports say.
45 jihadists die from 'eating poisoned iftar meal after breaking Ramadan fast' - Report
These reports from Iraqi media this is not are not the first time ISIS militants have been known to be targeted by poisoned food
According to Daily Mail, a total of 145 people are thought to have sat down for the 'iftar' meal at Mosul, Iraq, but only 100 walked away alive.
It is unclear whether the jihadists were deliberately poisoned or whether they suffered from food poisoning, a spokesman for the Kurdish Democratic Party said.
These reports from Iraqi media, which were seen by the Haaretz website, are not the first time ISIS militants have been known to be targeted by poisoned food.
Dozens of Islamic State soldiers allegedly died in similar circumstances in November when the Free Syrian Army rebel group sneaked into their camp - where 1,200 were supposedly stationed - posing as chefs and poisoned their lunches.
Sources inside the rebel group, which battles both ISIS and the Syrian government, claimed at least ten ISIS fighters died after eating the contaminated lunch.
The reports came from the now-defunct Times of Iraq, and their reliability has been questioned since.
However, several images have emerged throughout Ramadan showing ISIS extremists sitting down to lavish meals while those living under its brutal regime starve.
Undercover footage from the terror group's adopted capital of Raqqa in Syria showed hundreds of young boys and burqa-clad women queuing for food and water in the blistering heat.
It was shared by anti-ISIS activists Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently alongside the caption, 'the second day of Ramadan' - the holy month when Muslims do not eat or drink from dawn until the sun has set.
While they starve, the terror group's soldiers share pictures of themselves sitting down to a hearty meal of fried fish, pickles, green salad and white rice.
Other bizarre images show the fighters' automatic rifles resting on the carpet beside silver platters full of fresh fruit and shining cutlery wrapped in dainty napkins. As well as images of barbarity and beheadings, Islamic State often boasts on social media about how the eight million people living under its brutal reign in the Middle East and north Africa are well provided for.
It shares images of roads being paved and street signs being fixed in an attempt to portray it can take care of a massive population.
Now in heartbreaking images the Islamic State PR machine would rather not be seen, the shockingly young children stand in line with empty buckets - waiting for food and water which may never come.
