An information office of The Islamic State, ISIS, in Libya has published photos of its militants burning musical instruments they said were confiscated in line with the radical group’s interpretation of Sharia law.
The instruments had been confiscated by the religious police, and were destroyed near the port city of Derna, in eastern Libya.
In Syria, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, ISIL, which is based in the northern part of the country, has banned folkloric dancing and music at public celebrations such as weddings.
On 19 January 2015, ISIL militants flogged five young men from Aleppo province after catching them playing musical instruments and accusing them of engaging in prohibited practices. The musical instruments they had seized were smashed.
