He doesn't want to fight ... claims his will is a martyrdom operation in France. Claims sick but doesn't have a medical report.
ISIS has a morale problem.
A new report from The Washington Post shows fighters are calling out sick and want to quit. The Post obtained documents on members of the Tariq Bin Ziyad battalion that were identified as "problem" fighters.
Notes indicate one of the "problem" fighters wouldn't fight because his back hurt. Another said he had a headache. Others wanted transfers to Syria or outright refused to fight.
Most of the battalion was made up of foreign fighters. More people from France have joined ISIS' ranks than any other European nation.
The documents also provide background information on the fighters, including the number of wives, children and slaves each had.
There are plenty of foreign fighters that went and found that the IS experience wasn't what they thought it would be.
Iraq's Lt. Col. Muhanad al-Tamimi said foreign fighters are "the most furious fighters we ever fought against," and their declining morale bodes poorly for ISIS' efforts.
The battle against ISIS for Mosul continues to rage. The western half of the city is held by ISIS, but 30,000 people have returned to neighborhoods militants once held. Mosul is ISIS' de facto capital.
