People line up to receive handouts at IS-run benefits office

London, Sep 1 (IANS) The Islamic State terrorist group has become synonymous with murder, rape and destruction rather than philanthropism, but new photos released by the terror group claim to show militants giving money to the poor, a media report said on Tuesday.

In the bizarre set of images, IS fighters were seen handing large wads of cash to men at what appears to be a dole office in a province straddling the border between Iraq and Syria.

The pictures are the terrorists’ latest attempt to persuade people they are doing good by the people under their control, despite being responsible for the poverty in the region, a report on Daily Mail said.

The pictures, which were shared on Twitter, were taken in the Jazira Province which covers areas of Iraq and Syria.

The transactions were recorded on paper headed with IS’ distinctive black and white logo.
