This is the gruesome moment ISIS barbarians hacked off a man's arm - after accusing him of being a thief.

Graphic pictures show a prisoner kneeling in a town center in Syria with militants holding his arm across a chopping block as his sentence is carried out.

A sword is held in place on his wrist before a terrorist brings a hammer down on the blade repeatedly until his hand is hacked off.

Crowds of men and boys can be seen watching the punishment being meted out after his crimes were read out over a loud speaker.

According to Terror Monitor, the brutal sentence was imposed by the ISIS-affiliated Khalid Bin al-Walid army in Syria.

It is not the first time thieves have been maimed by ISIS brutes for their crimes.

In August, sickening images emerged of a man having his hand chopped off with a cleaver while a baying crowd watched on.

The man was blindfolded and dragged to a square in the terror group's stronghold of Raqqa in Syria before being forced in to a seat while his arm was held to a wooden table.

Gruesome pictures showed a balaclava-wearing terrorist positioning a cleaver on the man's wrist and striking down on the weapon with a large metal bar.

More than 290,000 people have been killed in Syria since March 2011, and millions displaced by the fighting.

Successive rounds of international negotiations aimed at find a political solution have failed to bear fruit, though US Secretary of State John Kerry and his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov are due to resume discussions on stemming the violence Monday, Daily Mail reported.
