ISIS jihadis who look tough on social media are writing their own sick notes to avoid battle
According to documents found by Iraqi troops, Arab and European militants from ISIS’ Tarek ibn Ziad battalion protest the most feeble illnesses, including headaches, sore feet, backaches and knee spasms.
The Arab and European battalion formed by Abdelilah Himich, a jihadi who controlled to the November 2015 Paris attacks, have also complained in a bid to be discharged from duty so they can return to their home countries.
Reports suggest the militants could be trying to flee the frontline before Iraqi and Kurdish troops along with US-led forces in Mosul begin to reclaim Western Mosul, which will be a much more brutal battle than the fight for eastern Mosul, according to Iraqi news.

Amid increasing pressure from Iraqi forces, ISIS jihadis have begun to turn their back on the terror network, as infighting has increased within the group.
Earlier this month, militants reportedly shot each other after experiencing a tirade of lethal blasts from British air forces in Mosul.
An RAF spokesman said: “The Reaper's crew identified a Daesh mortar team trying to conceal their activity in a wooded area, and struck them with a Hellfire missile.
"A second Hellfire accounted for a group of terrorists close to an Iraqi unit. In the confusion of the street fighting, the Reaper observed Daesh firing on each other, with at least one fighter killed by their own side.”
Since the brutal battle begun in October, at least 3,300 ISIS fighters have been killed.

ISIS’ chief executioner, Abu Sayyaf, is the last militant to have been killed, as reports confirm he was stabbed to death near Mosul on Sunday night.
Although ISIS militants are struggling on the battleground, other jihadi groups took to social media to applaud Trump's travel ban as they claimed it will drive a wedge between the US and its Muslim citizens.
