A crowd gathered to watch Islamic State militants blindfold a ‘gay’ man and throw him from a tall building in the latest atrocity in Syria. The crowd then stoned his corpse.
The barbaric killing is just the latest in a series of killings targeting homosexuals by ISIS militants.
It is believed the man was sentenced to death by a sharia court, and then thrown from a building in Raqqa in front of a roaring crowd.

According to the Mirror:
‘Lot’ is a reference to a prophet of God whose story in the Qu’ran is used to demonstrate Islam’s supposed disapproval of rape and homosexuality.
The images appear to show the man was blindfolded and had his feet tied before being hurled onto rubble from a tall building.
Crowds then gather round and pelt the corpse with rocks.
This marks the fourth time in a few weeks that the jihadist group has used the brutal execution method for alleged homosexuality.
Last month, two men were also thrown from the top of a tower block and two others were crucified in front of a baying crowd as part of a ‘brutal punishment’ for being gay.
In December, photos emerged on social media showing a ‘gay’ man being thrown to his death from a rooftop by eight ISIS fighters.
