15 Women were disfigured with Acid by ISIS Female Police for Not Wearing Niqab.
Alalam reported “The ISIS policing unit in Mosul severely disfigured the faces of 15 Iraqi women by pouring acid on them as a form of punishment after the women were caught without their faces being veiled appropriately, by ISIS standards, last weekend.
ISIS’ all-female policing unit, the Al Khansa brigade, which polices the streets of the group’s Syrian stronghold of Raqqa and Iraqi stronghold of Mosul, reportedly carried out the punishments after the women were detained in the Mosul neighborhood of Salamiya, a kurdish official told media.
The official from the Kurdistan Democratic Party in Mosul, Saed Mamuzini, told the news site that the women were subject to the cruel, face-deforming punishment simply because they were caught in public without wearing a Niqab, the cloth like veil that fully covers the face except for slit for the eyes.
“They have implemented this punishment so that other women in the city will never consider removing or not wearing the niqab,” Mamuzini said.
