Images of women working in a hijab factory allegedly run by Islamic State, also known as ISIS, have emerged online.
The photos originated from a blog entitled the “Information Office of the Mandate of Nineveh,” the same organization that has distributed images of executions perpetrated by ISIS, the Daily Mail reported.
Women in head-to-toe black garments appear to stitch together hijabs, a traditional head covering frequently worn by Muslim women, as children run around. The factory is allegedly based in the Nineveh Province in northern Iraq, where ISIS militants have overrun the capital city of Mosul.
The blog’s photos had captions such as “shaping and tailoring of Islamic veils in one of the Islamic State factories.”
Under a photo of women wrapping the veils in plastic, the caption reads “Preparing Islamic veils for distribution to Muslims.”
The images were posted on Jan. 30 and have since garnered more than 10,000 hits.
Under ISIS’s rule, women are required to conform to strict behavioral and dress standards. A new manifesto from from the all-female Al-Khanssaa Brigade of ISIS fighters outlined the treatment of women, who can be forced to marry as young as the age of 9.
“It is always preferable for a woman to remain hidden and veiled, to maintain society from behind this veil,” the manifesto reads, in part.
