The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Shams (Isis) has imposed a strict set of Sharia laws on the citizens of Nineveh province just days after capturing the provincial capital of Mosul.

In a document circulating on social media attributed to the group, Isis warned tribal leaders and sheikhs not to “work with [the Iraqi] government and be traitors” while proclaiming that women should only go outside if absolutely necessary.

“For women, dress decently and wear wide clothes. Only go out if needed,” read the document as translated by Al Aan TV reporter Jenan Moussa.

Further rules included bans on drugs, alcohol and cigarettes while public gatherings, the possession of guns and the carrying of flags not of the Islamic state were outlawed.

The document added that Isis wish to destroy all shrines and graves, in reference to Shia shrines in towns such as Samarra where fighting is continuing.

“For those asking who are you? We are soldiers of Islam and took on our responsiblity to bring back glory of the Islamic Caliphate.

“Money we took from [the] Safavid government is now public. Only Imam of Muslims can spend it. Anyone who steals [will have their] hands cut,” the document translation read.

    Mosul Iraq — Match Historical Pictures to Today’s Headlines

    Jihadi forces overran Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, this week. Analysts explain Mosul’s significance as the center of Iraq’s oil-rich areas, the gateway for the Sunni radicals to attack Baghdad, and a debacle for the U.S.-supported Iraqi army.

    But Mosul also has an ancient history. It was the Biblical city of Nineveh, so large that the Book of Jonah describes it as a “great city of three days journey in breadth.”

    We present pictures of Mosul 80 years ago and of Jews of Mosul approximately 100 years ago.

    Read here a 2007 account of a Jewish chaplain from the US Army’s 101st Airborne who discovered the remnants of Mosul’s Jewish community.
