ALEPPO – Extremists of the Islamic State (ISIS) launched an arrest campaign in Syria’s northern city of Jarablus on Wednesday, targeting women accused of violating the dress code imposed by the radical group.
Local activists and eyewitnesses confirmed that ISIS militants have detained more than 30 women in Jarablus on charges of violating the Sharia dress.
Most of the arrestees were targeted in the central market of Jarablus on Wednesday evening.
“They were brutally beaten by ISIS jihadis in front of hundreds of people in the marketplace, before being arrested and transferred to the women’s detention center in Jarablus,” a media activist who witnessed the campaign told ARA News, speaking on condition of anonymity for security concerns.
“The arrested women are expected to be whipped in public tomorrow afternoon,” the source reported, quoting sources in the ISIS-led Sharia Court in Jarablus.
In areas under ISIS control, every woman accused of violating the Islamic dress code imposed by the radical group is being flogged 50 times in public as a punishment, based on extremist regulations of the Sharia Court.
