A seemingly normal dinner took an unexpected turn for Isis members when 45 died from food poisoning. Metro reports that about 145 people took part in eating iftar, known as the meal that breaks the daily Ramadan fast.
Of the 145 diners, 45 succumbed to food poisoning and died.
While it’s still not clear if the poisoning was intentional or unintentinoal, it was reported that a similar incident occurred last year. Then, the Free Syrian Army snuck into an Isis camp pretending to be chefs and poisoned the food. Ten members of Isis were killed.
Since more than half the attendees walked away, it’s likely that only a few select dishes or drinks were tainted.
