ERBIL – Extremists of the Islamic State (ISIS) executed on Sunday two Iraqi men for being gay, local sources in the city of Mosul reported.
The ISIS militants brutally threw the two young men off a building’s roof under the pretext they were a gay couple.
“On Sunday afternoon, Daesh (ISIS) called on the people of Mosul to gather in the square of Bab al-Toub in order to witness the execution of the two allegedly men,” an eyewitness told ARA News on the condition of anonymity.
“The victims were taken to the top of a building and were brutally thrown off the roof.”
The ISIS-linked Sharia Court had issued a decision to execute every gay man by throwing him from the top of a building.
The extremist group has executed dozens of allegedly gay men in its areas of control in Syria and Iraq in the recent months.
“Daesh accuses people of being gay only on basis of some superficial information without any investigation. Although the Islamic law bans homosexuality, but the brutal punishment by Daesh has never been witnessed throughout history,” civil rights activist Raed Ahmed told ARA News.
