    (ANSAmed) - ISTANBUL, JANUARY 21 - The Islamic State (ISIS) is planning to contaminate Turkey's water supplies, according to a 'confidential' intelligence report.

    The report was sent to the deputy governor of Istanbul on Friday and revealed Thursday by the media. The country's intelligence services say that ISIS - which has previously carried out chemical attacks in Syria and Iraq - aims to spread several types of contagious bacteria including tularemia, also known as 'rabbit fever', which is difficult to diagnose as its symptoms resemble those of several types of flu.
