The jihadists’ bodies were found badly mangled by refugees fleeing through farmland as they tried to get away from Isil territory in al-Rashad, southwest of the city.

Isil fighters responded to the deaths by going on a killing spree of wild boars in the area, said Brigadier Azad Jelal, the deputy head of the Kurdish intelligence service in Kikurk.

“Three fighters from Isil were near the Peshmerga checkpoint in al-Rashad. They met some feral boars and the boars killed the three fighters,” he told The Telegraph.

“Some refugees saw the bodies on the edge of a farm when they were fleeing and they told us. A few days later Isil started to kill pigs around the area.”

Brigadier Jelal said the three men may have been trying to defect from Isil and were trying to get near a Kurdish checkpoint to surrender. He said the refugees did not see any weapons with the bodies, suggesting they had come unarmed.

He said his forces had not tried to recover the bodies because of ongoing fighting in the area. Isil is believed to have taken the bodies back when they began shooting boar around al-Rashad.
