IS bans burka in N Iraq after veiled woman kills two jihadists


Baghdad – The Islamic State (IS) has recently placed a ban on women wearing burka in northern Iraq after reports of its fighters getting targeted by ‘burka-clad fighters.’
Previously they had issued a Fatwa on women who did not wear the burka, even killing hundreds of them for not covering their face or hair in public.

Now they have banned women wearing veils inside their security centres in Mosul, their Iraqi stronghold, after two of their commanders were killed by burka-clad opposition fighters.
Last week, in the occupied Saladin Governorate south of Mosul, IS put out a warning to members to beware of a veiled woman who killed two of their fighters. The attacks happened in Al-Shirqat, which has been under IS control since the extremists overran the region in June 2014.
An IS fighter was also attacked in Mosul, the second most populous city in Iraq, prompting the terrorists to take precautionary measures, according to a source in the province who informed the Iraqi News network.
Sharing details, the source said, “A veiled woman carrying a pistol killed two members of ISIS who were standing in a checkpoint in Sharqat, north of Salah al-Din. The incident surprised the organisation and forced them to issue an alert of similar attacks.”
Often thought of as “jihadi brides” some have even been used as fighters in the ‘Al-Khansaa Brigade’, an all-female police force. According to reports from Syria, the Al-Khansaa Brigade was formed “in early 2014 and charged with policing the public morality of women in Raqqa city.” -IBT
