ISIS throws another ‘gay’ man to his death in front of a crowd

ISIS has thrown another gay man to his death in front of a crowd.

The man was executed in the Iraqi city of Rawa after being accused of engaging in homosexual acts.

As the victim was escorted to the top of a tall building by three men, a crowd congregated below. The victim’s hands and feet were then bound and he was pushed off the edge of the roof.

Images capturing the execution were posted this weekend by the “Media office of Euphrates Province.”

One caption read: “The execution, as sentenced by God, of the people of Lut in the city of Rawa.”

Another caption read “Please don’t forget to pray for us.”

This is at least the 17th man thrown off a rooftop for being gay. Another six were stoned to death, and three were executed by being shot in the head.

At least 26 people have been murdered because ISIS suspected they were gay, but that number is difficult to confirm and potentially much higher.
