Five men in Iraq, were pulled out of their homes and lashed in public after they installed flush toilets in their bathrooms.

Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in Mosul, announced that its fighters had whipped five men for using flush toilet instead of squat toilet in their homes.

The incident unfolded on Tuesday night. Each of the five men were lashed 20 times. Residents in the city, said that ISIS warned that they would lash anyone who uses a flush toilet in their home.

ISIS also warned residents to refrain from using cellphones, watching TV and chewing gum. Violators will receive 20 lashes for each offense.

Earlier this month, ISIS fighters captured a man and took him as a prisoner to Mosul.

The mother of the man, who was determined to see her son, traveled to ISIS headquarters and asked to see him. The terrorists told the mother to rest after her long journey, and offered her food before taking her to her son.

They brought her cups of tea and fed her a meal of cooked meat, rice and soup. At first, she thought that they were kind.

When she was done eating, she asked the terrorists to take her to her son, but they laughed in her face, saying that she just ate him.

The poor woman did not know that the terrorists killed her son and made a meal from his flesh before feeding her.
