( BAGHDAD – The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) decreed that it will punish owners of satellite dishes in Deir al-Zour province (north-eastern Syria) with 50 lashes and a fine of 10,000 Syrian Pounds which is equal to approximately $46 US Dollars.


The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said “ISIS has recently stepped up its campaign to ban the use of satellite dishes in the territories under its control in Syria and Iraq because they claim to broadcast rumors among Muslims.”
