"Hundreds of people witnessed the brutal punishment. ISIS is trying to terrorize the people by conducting such punishments in public."

These are only the latest in a whole series of violent punishments on Civilians by the Islamic State. Another recent incident includes a suspected thief having his hand and foot amputated. Horrific images of the incident were released by ISIS as they usually do. ISIS have become more violent in their punishments in recent months, as incidents like these are becoming more and more regular.
