After gaining control over Syria, the Islamic State terrorist group is now prohibiting thousands of children in the country from learning mathematics or social studies based on their newly released diktats.

According to a report from CNN, Syrian children will no longer have the chance to learn about democracy and election as well as sports, and will instead be taught the radical teachings of the jihadists.

Posters and fliers posted on street poles and billboards indicate the new educational demands and emphasize that anyone who disobeys "will be punished."

It also stated that teachers will be given alternative courses to teach the children and that phrases like the 'Syrian Arab Republic' would no longer be used and should be replaced by 'Islamic State.'

Ideologies and nationalistic virtues are also prohibited in the new education system and will be replaced with teachings which emphasize "the belonging to Islam ... and to denounce infidelity and infidels."

Aside from this, books should no longer bear any reference to evolution and should indicate that laws of chemistry and physics are subject to "Allah's rules and laws."

The directive concluded with a vehement warning stressing that obeying it is 'obligatory' and that "all violators will be punished."

To make matters worse, the jihadist group was reported to have killed at least 200 people on Tuesday alone.

The estimated number of casualties has risen to nearly 200,000 in the conflict between Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's administration and the Sunni rebels who seek to end over 40 years of al-Assad's family's reign.

For the past few weeks, ISIS militants have also made their opinion of the West clear after beheading two Americans and one British national while threatening another prisoner from the United Kingdom.

However, ISIS executions have prompted the West to strike back as U.S. President Barack Obama vows to eliminate the terrorist group no matter what.
