Free Syrian Army rebel group snuck into ISIS camp posing as chefs and killed dozens in November  

At least 45 ISIS militants have been killed after breaking their Ramadan fast with a poisoned meal, according to reports.

A total of 145 people are thought to have sat down for the ‘iftar’ meal at Mosul, Iraq, but only 100 walked away alive, according to reports out of the embattled city.

It is unclear whether the fanatics were deliberately poisoned or whether they suffered from food poisoning, a spokesman for the Kurdish Democratic Party said.

These reports from Iraqi media, which were seen by the Haaretz website, are not the first time ISIS militants have been known to be targeted by poisoned food.

Dozens of Islamic State soldiers allegedly died in similar circumstances in November when the Free Syrian Army rebel group sneaked into their camp – where 1,200 were supposedly stationed – posing as chefs and poisoned their lunches.

Sources inside the rebel group, which battles both ISIS and the Syrian government, claimed at least ten ISIS fighters died after eating the contaminated lunch.

The reports stemmed from the now-defunct Times of Iraq, and their reliability has been questioned since.

Images have emerged throughout Ramadan showing ISIS extremists sitting down to lavish meals while those living under its brutal regime starve.
