Meet the Islamic State's All-Female Police

ISIS thugs are fielding a brutal police force made up entirely of women.

The vile al-Khansaa brigade, an all-female militia, is tasked with enforcing the group's warped interpretation of the Quran on the women trapped within the so-called caliphate.

British jihadist Aqsa Mahmood, 20, is believed to be the ringleader of the group based out of Syria's Raqqa, near where US journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff were killed.

The group identified by King's College London academics is mainly tasked with keeping tabs on women within the so-called Islamic State.

Meanwhile US analysts at the Terrorism Research & Analysis Consortium claims that al-Khansaa’s members are all single and dress in traditional black Islamic robes. Enforcers are paid a monthly salary of £100.

The news comes as academics at King's College London revealed a surge in British women fleeing the UK to fight for ISIS in Syria.

The university believes that about 60 British women have joined the group while more have researched jihad in the past three weeks following the release of brutal beheading videos.

Abu Ahmad, an ISIS official in Raqqa, told Syria Deeply’s Ahmad al-Bahri, "We have established the brigade to raise awareness of our religion among women, and to punish women who do not abide by the law."
