The entire world is facing the threats of ISIS, but perhaps the one place that has seen the worst is Syria. They are living a pure hell under its repeated haunting. It is unthinkable.

As if they had not already caused enough turmoil, now they dumped a few dead bodies in public to let the Leishmaniasis disease spread among the civilians.

It causes the flesh to deplete in a horrifying way.

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN - MAY 15: An Afghan recieves treatment for a tropical skin disease at a clinic on May 15, 2010 south of Kabul, Afghanistan. The Afghan capital, Kabul, has one of the highest concentrations of the disfiguring skin disease, Cutaneous leishmaniasis, which is a parasitic disease transmitted by the phlebotomine sand fly. The World Health Organization estimated the number of cases in Kabul jumped from 17,000 in early 2000 to around 65,000 in 2009; the disease is non-lifethreatening and treatable with medication.

4. It made the skin of this man rot

Bugs ate half of his nose.


KABUL, AFGHANISTAN - OCTOBER 23: An Afghan woman with Leishmaniasis waits for treatment at the Health Net Clinic October 23, 2002 in Kabul, Afghanistan. Leishmaniasis is caused by a parasite transmitted by the sandlfy resulting in a harsh-looking ulcer. In Kabul and other urban areas, the sandfly bites at night and is often linked to lack of hygiene. More than a quarter of a million Afghans will be infected with the skin disease this year which can be cured if treated. For the women, Leishmaniasis causes social stigmatization. Once the face is scarred by the disease, she is no longer a prime choice for marriage. (Photo by Paula Bronstein/Getty Images)


5. What does the World Health Organization has to say?

The WHO has said that if the war between ISIS and Syria lasts for more than 5 years, then the civilians health will be at a greater risk.
