ISIS throws Syrian gay couple off a roof
The radical group of Islamic State (ISIS) has brutally executed two Syrian men in the eastern province of Deir ez-Zor, throwing them off a roof on charges of “committing buggery”, local activists reported on Tuesday.
Speaking to ARA News in Deir ez-Zor, civil rights activist R. M. confirmed that ISIS radicals have thrown two men off the roof of the Hikma hospital’s building in Deir ez-Zor, on charges of “homosexuality and sodomy”.
“One of them was identified as Shadi from the city of al-Asharah, and the other one was named Ibrahim from the village of Maizilah,” the source said under the condition of anonymity.
“The two young men were allegedly a gay couple.”
“The brutal execution took place in front of a crowd of people in central Deir ez-Zor, watching the victims being thrown off the building,” the source added.
On October 4, the hardline group had two Iraqi men in the northwestern Iraqi city of Mosul for being gay. The ISIS militants brutally threw the two young men off a building’s roof under the pretext they were a gay couple.
Metro Weekly reports that the two men were stoned once they hit the ground:
In graphic images shared online by Terror Monitor, ISIS fighters and a large crowd of men and boys gathered in Aleppo, Syria, to stone two men to death on the grounds that they had engaged in homosexual behavior.
They were dragged, blindfolded, from a car before being thrown to the ground and pelted with heavy rocks that had been assembled nearby.
