Smokers get their fingers chopped off. Hands of thieves are amputated. Men with tattoos are whipped.
Child brides are even younger, because families will prevent the unmarried young women being forced into marriages with fighters.
The UN report by the Independent Commission in Syria reveals both crimes against humanity and war crimes. Yesterday the report's conclusion was known. Detailed descriptions by 300 eyewitnesses and refugees who were interviewed was made known. They have told and shown pictures and videos of atrocities in Syria and northern Iraq.
- Those who have fled are telling about how they have been victims of terror and actions to quell resistance in the population, Pietro Pinheiro, who heads the UN Syria commission says to CNN.
The report entitled "Terror Laws: To live under IS in Syria» describes how IS use murder, slavery, rape and sexual slavery to control the population. It also tells in detail about a brutal controlled daily life where even the slightest violation of the Sharia is met with harsh and savage consequences.
A UN witnesses tells of an amputation in Raqqa:
"IS declared from the mosque that" Al-Hadd, "an Islamic punishment would be carried out against a person on the square. The day after a man was brought to the square blindfolded. An IS-member read out a sentence. Two people held the prisoner, while a third stretched his arm over a long plank. A fourth man cut off the prisoners arm. It took a long time. One of those who stood beside me, vomited and fainted."
UN states that unmarried women are considered a threat to the terrorists' social rules. Parents of little girls and unmarried young women are terrified that their daughters will be forced to enter into marriage with an IS-warrior. Therefore there are a rising number of child marriages.
The UN report states that parents fear is real: Girls down to 13 years of age have been taken by the IS and ended up as war brides.
The terrorist group, according to the report, is being very conscious of spreading their message to children.
In IS-capital Raqqah in Syria, children are gathered to watch videos which include mass executions of government troops. Children are also exposed to horrendous impressions, as witnessing public executions, amputations and the sight of dead bodies as set out in the marketplaces.
In most cities dead bodies and severed heads hangs along roads and squares as a warning.
UN states that IS has a hierarchical structure established, a command and control system under leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who has absolute power. He is supported by several entities, including the military leadership. IS also has a network of local and regional emirs and military leaders who are forcing total discipline. Although they have recruited several thousand Syrians, management is dominated by foreign fighters.
