Islamic State Photos Show Burqa-Clad Women in Combat

TEL AVIV — The Islamic State has released photos and video purporting to showing women fighting in its ranks.

The global terrorist organization didn’t include any information specifying where the alleged battle involving the women took place.

Little territory remains in IS hands, mainly in the Hama governate and in limited areas near Aleppo and the border region with Israel.

But even as the organization seemed to be allowing and promoting women to fight on the front lines along with the men, a report from the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights claimed that IS has stoned to death a woman suspected of prostitution, meaning she had sexual relations outside the framework of marriage.

Photos obtained by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights showed members of the IS-affiliated Khalid Bin Waleed militia active in the triangle border region between Israel, Jordan and Syria executing the woman, who was the wife of an IS fighter who fled the organization and the region under its control in the Daraa governate in southern Syria.
