According to Israel National News, the NGO Al-Merced has documented a case in the city of Albuhamal in the province of Deir al-Zor in eastern Syria, where a woman was attacked by upholders of ISIL law for the crime of being overly exposed. Two men who tried to protect her were reportedly also arrested.
There have been repeated reports of ISIL's brutality towards women whom they deem to have transgressed their laws on appearance and behaviour, even carried out by all-female brigades of enforcers, al-Khansa, which was formed in February 2014 in the city of Raqqa.
Last month an ISIL document entitled "Women in the Islamic State: Manifesto and Case Study" surfaced on the internet:- it is reported by the Quilliam Foundation to have been produced by the al-Khansa brigade. The manifesto sets out how women should behave in the self-proclaimed 'caliphate.' Describing the hijab as "the greatest of rights," it declares that the veil is "the first [garment] by which women may recover their rights, and 'protection religion' is the first and the foremost of the five necessities that the sharia came to uphold and maintain."
