ISIS extremists publicly flogged six Syrian women on Tuesday for violating the Sharia dress code, activists and eyewitnesses reported.

The ISIS-controlled religious police, known as al-Hisba, arrested and flogged the women in Syria’s northeastern Raqqa City. Raqqa serves as a de facto ISIS capital.

“Al-Hisba forces arrested six women near the central marketplace in Raqqa on Tuesday morning under the pretext that they have violated the Sharia dress,” an eyewitness said.

“The group has publicly flogged the women, with 50 lashes each,” media activist Salim al-Raqawi said.

“They vowed that any woman violating the regulations would face an even harsher punishment.”

According to local sources, public corporal punishments take place on a daily basis in ISIS-held areas. These punishments are used to reinforce the group’s authority and stifle dissent, ABNA reported.
