Damascus, Syria – An Indonesian fighter in the ranks of the Islamic State group (IS/ISIS) passed AIDS on to his Yezidi sex slave. The same slave has been later sold to other members of the radical group, causing a state of panic in the ranks of IS in Shaddadi city, northeast Syria.
On Wednesday, Syrian human rights activist group ‘Sound and Picture’ reported the spread of AIDS among a group of IS militants in Shaddadi city in Hasakah province.
“The infected Indonesian militant passed the disease on to his 15-year-old Yezidi sex slave, who brought it further to other militants after being repeatedly sold,” a Syrian local activist told ARA News on the condition of anonymity.
The Indonesian militant has also donated blood at an IS-held hospital in Shaddadi, before being tested positive with AIDS, which raised the group’s concerns about possible infection of dozens other militants.
The source added that the Yezidi girl was sold to an Egyptian fighter, “who was also confirmed positive with AIDS”.
“IS executed the Indonesian fighter for spreading the disease among the militants,” the source reported.
Medical sources in the IS-held province of Deir ez-Zor reported Wednesday that AIDS has spread to several other militants who raped the same Yezidi girl.
Among the infected militants are two Saudi nationals and an Egyptian.
