Bizarre new images show ISIS (Daesh) militants using a ruler to measure the precise size of the wound they intend to inflict on a young man.
It reflects the terror group's new policy of 'eye-for-eye' punishments, where they inflict the same wounds on supposed criminals as they did on their victims.
In this case, the two men being harmed had allegedly slashed the head of a man in the Iraqi city of Mosul. The group has previously published a list of horrendous penalties for alleged crimes committed under its territory.
The images were posted online by anti-ISIS activists Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently who are fierce opponents of the militants' brutal practices. It tweeted: 'ISIS Injured the head of 2 boys who Injured another boy... and they make the wound in the same size.'
Islamic State has shared thousands of images revealing its merciless interpretation of law and order on land under the control.
In a revealing document which surfaced on its vast social media web, the group said all those who blaspheme against God or his messenger will be put to death.
Adulterers who engage in a sexual relationship are stoned to death while those found guilty of 'highway robbery' face execution. IS claims this list of religious punishments is a 'warning and deterrent' to so-called disbelievers and infidels. And many of the punishments have already been carried out by IS.
Public crucifixions in the IS stronghold of Raqqa in northern Syria have become common-place while pictures of stonings and gay men being thrown from buildings have been widely circulated on social media. The new list of religious punishments pertains to the IS-controlled province of Aleppo and claims to be based on Sharia law.
