The man is seen falling after being pushed off the roof
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (Isis) has proudly announced that it has horribly executed a man found “guilty” of being gay.
“The Islamic court in Wilayet al-Furat decided that a man who has practised sodomy must be thrown off the highest point in the city, and then stoned to death,” said the group in a statement.
It also released images of the man being thrown off a two-story building near the Iraq-Syria border. He’s then seen lying on the ground, after which he was presumably stoned to death.
Last month, there were reports that two men accused of being gay were stoned to death in Syria by Isis in two separate incidents.
The one man in Mayadeen, said to be in his 20s, was apparently found with videos on his phone showing him engaging in “indecent acts” with other men.
An 18-year-old man was also stoned to death in Deir Ezzor city following allegations that he was gay.

The spread of Isis, which prescribes death for homosexuality, in Syria and Iraq has dramatically worsened the already perilous environment for LGBT people in the region.
In September, Mambaonline reported on a propaganda video in which an Isis militant equated gay people to animals, drug dealers and paedophiles.
Isis is a proponent of a radical interpretation of Sharia religious law which allows for the execution of people for “morality” crimes, including adultery and homosexuality.
The UN has accused Isis of committing “mass atrocities” and war crimes, with reports of mass executions, ethnic cleansing, torture, mutilation, stonings, beheadings, kidnappings and rape.
