Islamic State terrorists have banned the burka in parts of northern Iraq after a veiled woman killed two of their fighters.
Previously the terrorist organisation, which rules over large swathes of Syria and Iraq, have executed women for not wearing the burka.
However women are now being banned from wearing them in parts of Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city which is ruled by ISIS, after two high-profile commanders were killed by an unknown veiled woman said to be wielding a pistol.
Fighters for ISIS have been warned that following the attack, in Al-Shirqat, key parts of their Mosul stronghold – particularly in security centres – need to be protected from would-be female assassins.
Alongside the two killings, an ISIS fighter was also attacked in Mosul by a woman wearing the covering garment.
Iran Front Page claimed: “A veiled woman carrying a pistol killed two members of ISIS who were standing in a checkpoint.
“The incident surprised the organisation and forced them to issue an alert of similar attacks.”
The news comes as fighters for ISIS in Syria have fled the battlefield having lost their last territory on the Turkish border.
Turkish-backed rebels on Sunday secured the area in northern Syria stretching from Azaz to Jarablus, pushing out militants.
The move marks a substantial advance for an operation called Euphrates Shield, which started on August 24.
Turkish-backed rebels fighting under the loose banner of the Free Syrian Army have now taken the border town of Jarablus.
