It is not the first time Islamic State have released photographic evidence of the horrific execution of homosexuals in Iraq
From being thrown off the roof, stoned to death to being crucified, Islamic state militants have released a video showing of different styles of horrific executions.
According to Daily Mail, two men were hurled from the top of a tower block, two more were crucified in front of an excited crowd and a woman was stoned to death in the latest series of horrific executions by ISIS.
The men were thrown from the roof down to the crowd below in the brutal punishment for being gay.
Charges found against the accused were announced by a masked Islamic State fighter, using a small hand-held radio. Reading from a list, he declares the men are guilty of engaging in homosexual activities and should be punished by death, in accordance with Islamic State’s radical interpretation of Sharia law.
Two men accused of stealing were tied to makeshift metal crosses.
Both prisoners are shown wearing casual clothing rather than the standard orange jumpsuit, commonly worn by many Islamic State prisoners in recent many execution videos.
Two masked IS fighters, dressed in khaki military fatigues are photographed standing behind the two crucified men. Upon drawing their pistols, the fighters shoot the two alleged bandits in cold blood. Their motionless bodies remain tied to the metal crosses to the delight of the all male crowd.
It is not the first time Islamic State have released photographic evidence of the horrific execution of homosexuals in Iraq.
Standing nearby is Abu Omar al-Ansari, an elderly Islamic State fighter, with a thick beard of white facial hair.
He rose to fame as a propaganda figure, appearing in a video entitled ‘Message of the Mujahid’, in which he urges other Iraqis to join Islamic State.
Al-Ansari, who appears shabbily dressed in a black robe and a pair of combat boots, is shown shown reading out the crimes against a woman, accused of adultery. The woman is dressed in a full black burqa.
The final two photos show the burqa clad woman being stoned to death by a horde of Islamic State militants, hurling large rocks at the woman
Apparently, the stoning was not carried out at the public execution site like the city’s main square. Instead, she appears to have been stoned in a quieter residential area, away from the excited crowd.
