ISIS stones two more gay men to death in Syria

Nick Duffy October 28, 2015


The terrorist group known as Islamic State has executed two more men for homosexual acts – as supporters pelted their bodies with rocks.

Crowds of ISIS supporters gathered in the town of Aleppo, Syria, after two men were sentenced to death for being gay.

The men, were bound, pulled from waiting cars and thrown to the ground. The pair were then pelted with rocks by the braying crowd.

The group Terror Monitor re-shared the group’s photos of the event, writing: “Terror Group Stone ‘Gay Men’ To Death In #Aleppo.”
The photos are extremely graphic.

The terrorist group, which operates predominantly across Syria and Iraq, is notorious for filming videos in which captives – usually Westerners or opposing fighters – are brutally slaughtered.

It has also taken to executing men it claims are gay, by throwing them off of tall buildings and pelting them with rocks in IS-produced videos.

Earlier this year, a video, shot in Palmyra, showed two Syrian men be thrown off a building before being stoned to death.

Members of the terrorist group hold power across parts of Iraq, Syria and Libya.

Two gay men who fled Syria after living under ISIS spoke at the UN to tell of being gay under the regime. Subhi Nahas and Adnan spoke at a historic meeting of the UN Security Council, which was the first of its kind to address LGBT issues.

Labour’s Mary Creagh earlier today called for the UK to take a quota of LGBT refugees from Syria.
