Despite some Iraqi media outlets claiming ISIS fighters in Mosul have contracted Ebola, there's little reason to believe that's true.By Jake Godin | January 3, 2015
ISIS and Ebola — two of the most talked about issues of 2014 — have apparently converged in Iraq’s city of Mosul. Well, at least that’s what some Iraqi media would lead you to believe.
The unconfirmed report initially appeared in Iraq’s pro-government Al Sabaah newspaper in late December. In it, an unnamed source claimed ISIS fighters from Africa brought Ebola to Mosul. (Video via ISIS)
Other reports claim between two and five fighters were infected with the deadly disease and even that ISIS mandated bodies of those thought to have contracted it be burned after death. (Video via ISIS)
