Forty-five Daesh militants died on Tuesday after consuming poisoned food during an Iftar meal in the Iraqi city of Mosul, according to Saeed Mamozeny, the spokesman of the Democratic Kurdish Party.

Mamozeny told media that 145 militants sat down for a group Iftar in Mosul. However, the food was poisoned, and at least 45 have died as a result.

According to the report it is remains unknown if the militants were intentionally poisoned or if the food had simply expired.

However, Mamozeny believes that this might be a response from the citizens against Daesh militants because of their abusive acts against the residents of Mosul.
