Another LGBT victim of Isis brutality has come to light after he was pushed off a building and stoned to death for the “crime” of being gay.
Images of the horrific execution in the war ravaged Iraqi city of Mosul have been posted online. They show a blindfolded and bound young man surrounded by a group of masked militants on a rooftop.
He appears to be struggling as his murderers prepare to throw him to his death. Below, people, including at least two children, gather with a pile of stones and rocks at their feet.
In the next image the hapless victim is seen lying on the ground as the mob throws rocks at him to finish him off.
IraqiNews reported that the youth was executed after being found guilty “on charges of homosexuality” based on “the limits of Allah and Islam”.
As always, the victim was not identified. It is unclear when the incident took place but it is one of dozens of appalling murders of men who are gay or believed to be gay by Isis militants since 2014.
In January, Isis also executed another man for being gay in Mosul. In those pictures, the blindfolded victim was seen desperately clinging to the parapet before being pushed off the roof of a building.
The group 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.
Most victims of Isis gay executions have been beheaded, thrown off the top of buildings or stoned to death. Photos of the heinous killings are often distributed on social media.
In addition to the ‘gay’ executions, there have also been many reports, images and videos of the stoning of women convicted of adultery, and numerous accounts of people executed by Isis militias because of their religious or political affiliations.
