New images have emerged on social media of a man believed to be gay being thrown off the top of a building in northern Iraq.
The hapless blindfolded man is forced to kneel at the edge of a silo with his hands tied behind his back.
He is then pushed off by Isis militants and is seen tumbling to the concrete ground as a large crowd watches the “execution” below.
The horrific killing is just one of dozens since June 2014 in which the radical group has proudly executed gay people by stoning, beheading or by throwing them off rooftops.
In some cases those who survive the fall, no doubt with terrible injuries, are stoned to death by the crowd below.
It’s been claimed that undercover Isis members set up ‘dates’ with gay men in order to lure, capture and execute them.
The International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC) in March urged the UN to take a stronger stand against the ongoing murder of gay people by Isis.
“These atrocities only serve to heighten the alarm and psychological suffering among a population that has long endured discrimination and violence. Priority must be given to protecting these and other marginalised and persecuted minorities,” said IGLHRC.
There have also been reports and images of the stoning of women convicted of adultery, and numerous accounts of people executed by Isis militias because of their religious affiliation.
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.
Despite military efforts by both Middle East and Western governments the world appears impotent in stopping Isis and its savage brutality
