Cairo, February 21 : The Islamic State (IS) Sunni radical group Friday began distributing educational material for six subjects to schools in the areas under its control in Syria, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported.
SOHR noted that the main subject of the programme is monotheism, the manual of which has 179 pages and highlights the message of Mohammed Abdel Wahab, an Islamic scholar from the Arabian Peninsula, who explains the basis of believing in one god.
The rest of the subjects are Arabic, English, mathematics, geography, and physics and chemistry. Furthermore, the group listed Saturday as a normal school day, limiting the weekend to Friday only.
The IS forced teachers from schools in the parts it controls in Syria, especially in the provinces of Deir Al Zur and Raqqa, to swear allegiance to the terrorist organisation or quit their jobs.
Last June, the IS proclaimed a "caliphate" in areas it controls in Syria and Iraq.
