ISIS bans televisions to prevent people watching foreign channels in areas under its control


Islamic State has banned televisions in areas under its control to stop people watching foreign channels.

According to Mirror the extremist group has banned televisions and satellite receivers being bought, sold or repaired in ISIS-controlled parts of Syria and Iraq.

ISIS leaders have previously condemned watching television, claiming it spread information that is "incorrect, baseless and false".

It has criticised channels such as Al-Jazeera and Al-Arabiya as well as many Western media outlets over coverage of its occupation of parts of Iraq and Syria.

In recent months militants in some areas of Syria are reported to have entered residents' homes to smash up satellite receivers.

Meanwhile, an investigation by the Financial Times found ISIS makes almost $1billion (£649m) annually and can fund its campaign of twisted terror activity and bloodshed for years to come. 

ISIS makes close to $900 (£598m) million each year - predominantly from looting, oil fields and taxes.

Of its income, two-thirds is ploughed right back into its war machine while the rest of its income goes towards the day-to-day running of the territory it holds in Syria and Iraq - which includes major cities Mosul and Raqqa.

A mother who managed to flee ISIS in her home country of Mosul told how hospitals - which are ran on the Islamic State Health Service, an organisation that advertises itself with the NHS font logo - were packed with terror fighters receiving treatment.

However, as someone who is not loyal to ISIS, she was told to bring her own medicine.
