ISIS has posted photos of militants throwing a gay man from a roof and stoning him to death
Last month, ISIS stoned to death two men accused of homosexuality. Two recent publications have reported that LGBT people in Iraq are experiencing levels of persecution that puts many at imminent risk of death.
As previously reported, it is unclear whether the individuals ISIS has accused of homosexuality do in fact identify as gay. Accusing individuals of homosexuality has served as a pretext for ISIS to silence its opposition.
The latest attack took place yesterday on the border between Iraq and Syria.
A statement accompanying the photos read:
"The Islamic court in Wilayet al-Furat [an area on the Syrian-Iraqi border] decided that a man who has practised sodomy must be thrown off the highest point in the city, and then stoned to death.”
