Cairo: Cash-strapped Islamic State terror group has been killing its injured fighters so that their organs can be extracted and sold on the black market abroad, according to media reports.
“Doctors were threatened to take out the body organs of a wounded ISIL militant,” the Arabic-language al-Sabah newspaper reported citing an unnamed source in the Iraqi city of Mosul.
The terrorists are suffering a budget shortage after their recent loss of territory in the Southern part of Mosul and for the same reason it is reportedly killing its own militants who have been injured in southern Mosul to take out their body organs such as hearts and kidneys to sell them in the black market, the Iranian FARS news agency reported.
It also cited Spanish daily El Mondo as saying that faced with an increased number of wounded members in the Syrian army and popular forces’ attacks, the ISIS is using the body organs of its captives for transplantation.
According to the daily, the ISIS also forces the prisoners in Mosul jails to donate blood and postpones the execution of those sentenced to death to use their blood as much as possible.
Medical sources were quoted as saying that the personnel in one of hospitals in Mosul have seen corpses of at least 183 people whose organs had been taken out of their bodies....
