Islamic extremists are spreading a flesh eating bug across war-torn Syria, according to health experts.

The bug is being spread as a result of ISIS militants slaughtering innocent people and dumping their bodies in the street.

Known as Leishmaniasis disease, there have been 500 reported cases in Syria over the last year.

Dilqash Isa, who works for the Kurdish Red Crescent, said: "As a result of abominable acts by ISIS that included the killing of innocent people and dumping their corpses in streets, this is the leading factor behind the rapid spread of Leishmaniasis disease."

"We did not have knowledge about this deadly disease before.

"We have been fighting on the battlefield for almost four years and this disease basically generated from embattled areas of Tal Hamis, Hon and Qosa."

Also among those who have warned about health issues in Syria is The World Health Organisation (WHO).

It claims that there are 13 million Syrians in need of humanitarian aid.

A statement read: "Despite our best efforts, health needs are escalating, and more than four years of crisis is causing the Syrian health system to deteriorate.

"We’re seeing increasing trauma cases, rising mental health needs, reproductive health issues and both communicable and non-communicable diseases.

"A cholera outbreak has arisen in neighbouring Iraq – reminding us all that disease outbreaks have a tendency to afflict countries already afflicted by protracted crises.

"WHO is prepositioning medical supplies and putting preparedness measures in place to forestall potential spread into Syria."
