ISIS TORTURE DEVICE: Woman Punished With The ‘Biter’ For Not Wearing Gloves…
A former school teacher who fled ISIS in Iraq has described how a metal torture device known as ‘the Biter’ causes pain ‘worse than childbirth’.
The tool has been described as a device similar to a hunting trap – a metal clamping jaw with sharp teeth that cut into the flesh of the victim.
The brutal instrument, also known as ‘the Clipper’, is reportedly used to punish women in the ISIS-held city of Mosul, when they venture out with any skin on show.
The extremists insist that any woman in public should be fully veiled, wear loose or baggy trousers, socks, gloves and be accompanied by a male relative.
And now Fatima, who fled the terrorist stronghold told the Independent how her sister was punished with ‘the Biter’ because she had gone outside with her hands on show after forgetting her gloves.
The 22-year-old, who is now a housewife said: ‘The Biter has become a nightmare for us. My sister was punished so harshly last month because she had forgotten her gloves and left them at home.
‘The bruises and scars are still visible on her arm. She said the biting punishment is more painful than labour.’
Fatima said she decided to flee the brutal regime and head for a refugee camp in Kurdish-controlled Syria after seeing the terror group become more violent in the past year.
She also added that she decided to make the journey after several failed attempts as her children were starving.
It is not the first time that reports have suggest the jihadist group have used the torture device. More
