‘ISIS Mil­i­tants Ask­ing for Sick Notes to Skip Duty’

The Economic Times - - Around The World -

Wash­ing­ton: Is­lamic State ter­ror­ists are de­mand­ing doc­tors to give them sick notes in a bid to es­cape fight­ing on the front line, ac­cord­ing to a new re­port by the US mil­i­tary. The mil­i­tants are re­port­edly strug­gling to keep fighter morale up as the group strug­gles to deal with ter­ri­tory losses, mil­i­tary pres­sure, fi­nan­cial prob­lems and poor man­age­ment. They have been forced to slash their fighter’s wages and many have quit in dis­gust at their treat­ment. The mil­i­tants now get the equiv­a­lent of just £100 a month. PTI
