The happily awaiting crowd on the ground hurls rocks at the body to ensure that the man is dead.
UK Daily Mail Islamic State has released new shocking photos of a ‘gay ‘man being thrown off a roof and stoned to death. Following a trial in an Islamic State court, the man was taken to the roof of the building and thrown to his death in front a large crowd below.
The horrific act was carried out in Tel Abiad in the Islamic State capital of Raqqa in Syria. The man is described as a ‘child of Lot’ and accused of committing acts of sodomy. Lot is referred to in the Bible and the Qur’an, where it is claimed the people of Sodom and Gomorrah carried out sinful acts and were severely punished by God.
It is not the first occasion that Islamic State have published photos of such persecution. Another man accused of committing homosexual acts was thrown off the same building last month.
A large crowd of fighters and local residents of Raqqa are shown gathering to watch the horrific punishment outside the Islamic court building in Tal Abiad.
Amongst some of the bearded fighters, a number of children and women can be seen in the crowd, watching the horrific act. Dozens of men line a high wall, hoping to get a better view of the atrocity from their vantage point.
Following the announcement, the guilty man is shown being thrown off the building’s roof by two fighters. Another fighter stands on the roof, watching the man fall to his death. The victim’s legs and hands appear to have been bound together whilst his eyes have been covered by a black blindfold.
His broken body is shown lying on the ground, broken concrete and twisted metal litters the ground around his corpse.
The final photo shows the crowd enthusiastically hurling large rocks at the dead man’s body.
