“The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.” Isaiah 17:1 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: Looking for all the world like a Biblical plague, Leishmaniasis disease is spreading across Syria as a result of all the rotting corpses that ISIS is leaving in it’s wake of death and destruction. Maybe this is how Damascus becomes finally a ruinous heap.
Human rights workers have said that more than 500 cases of Leishmaniasis disease have been reported in Syria over the past 12 months. Dilqash Isa of 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.’
