ISIS has banned shaving and made full beards mandatory for men in Mosul, the second largest city in Iraq, so that members of the terror group can hide from airstrikes among civilians, according to reports.

Leaflets were handed out in recent days stating that from today, June 1, forward all men must grow full beards or face severe punishment.

A translation of the leaflet reads, "What hairdressers do today, shaving and trimming men’s beards, is an accessory to sin."

"Thanks to our brothers from the Islamic police, an order has been issued for the shaving of beards to be banned and violators to be detained."

According to reports, the terror group is establishing a "beard patrol" to oversee enforcement of the shaving ban.
