Dozen’s of witnesses stood by and did not intervene as a woman was flogged in the public Martyrs’ Square in central Manbij.
The 42-year-old woman, Hiam Jassim al-Awwad, was flogged for refusing orders from the Sharia court to marry her daughter to one of the ISIS militants.
According to media activist Nasser Taljbini, “The punishment came in the wake of refusing to marry off her daughter to one of the group’s militants.”
A militant from the group’s Sharia Court threatened the people of Manbij to be severely punished in case of refusing orders from ISIS. People are forced to implement the Caliphate’s orders in all cases,” he continued.
ISIS has flogged and even executed parents for denying their daughter’s marriage to group members.
In areas under ISIS’ control and in accordance with the extreme regulations of its Sharia court, any woman accused of violating the Islamic dress code may be flogged 50 times in public as punishment.
