Islamic State henchmen recently chopped off the right hand of two men who were said to have committed theft in the Aleppo province, the Middle East Media Research Institute reported.

In pictures that were disseminated through social media, photographs show a crowd of people standing and watching as two blindfolded men are hauled into a gated area in the town of Dar al-Fath.

The photos then show what appear to be meat cleavers. Subsequent pictures show the amputated hands of the convicted men.
