ARA News reports that Islamic State militants in Syria executed two Syrian men on Tuesday by throwing them off the rooftop of a hospital, charging them with “committing buggery.”
“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,” an anonymous source told ARA news. “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.”
“Daesh accuses people of being gay only on the basis of some superficial information without any investigation,” civil rights activist Raed Ahmed told ARA News. “The Islamic law bans homosexuality, but the brutal punishment by Daesh has never been witnessed throughout history.”
The extremist group has executed dozens upon dozens of “gay” men in the areas of Syria and Iraq that it controls.
They’ve yet to release photos of this recent attack.
