ISIS bans women from wearing burkas after chiefs attacked by veiled assassins


ISIS has backflipped on a decree ordering all women to wear burkas. In a bizarre turn of events, Islamic State fighters are now banning women from wearing burkas in security centres in the northern Iraqi city of Monsul and have declared the full-face veils are now a security risk. According to The Express, an insider told Al Alam News Network that terrorist chiefs had changed their mind following a string of attacks on ISIS commanders by women wearing burkas and niqabs in recent months.
