Months of losing ground in Iraq and Syria and suffering the deaths of key commanders has fueled paranoia and compelled ISIS leaders to kill dozens within its own ranks in a search for spies.

Thirty-eight suspected moles were killed in the aftermath of a drone bombing that killed Abu Hayjaa al-Tunsi, a senior ISIS commander, according to FoxNews.com.

And the methods to weed out spies have been gruesome — displaying dead bodies, or dropping suspected traitors in a vat of acid.

"Daesh is now concentrating on how to find informers because they have lost commanders that are hard to replace," a senior Iraqi intelligence official said. "Now any ISIS commander has the right to kill a person whom they suspect is an informer for the coalition."

ISIS has been prone to the rank-and-file converting to informants for monetary reasons. ISIS reduced salaries as a result of airstrikes on oil facilities that dealt a blow to the terrorist group's finances.
