Extremists of the Islamic State (ISIS) on Sunday publicly flogged an Iraqi woman in the city of Mosul on charges of violating the Sharia dress code, activists and eyewitnesses reported.
“The ISIS-led Islamic Police arrested on Sunday morning a 35-year-old woman in Mosul central market under the pretext that her clothes contradicted the dress code imposed by ISIS in the region,” an eyewitness told ARA News, speaking on condition of anonymity.
The woman has then appeared at the Sharia Court of Mosul, which accused her of violating the Islamic dress code and order ISIS jihadis to flog her in public.
“In front of hundreds of people, two masked militants whipped the woman with 50 lashes,” head of Nineveh media center Raafat al-Zarari told ARA News.
“The judges at the ISIS-led Sharia Courts have arbitrarily punished hundreds of people in Mosul on baseless charges,” al-Zarari said.
“Those public punishments take place on a daily basis in ISIS-held areas in an attempt from the group to show off its power over those vulnerable civilians,” he added.
