As U.S. forces step up their efforts in combating the activities of ISIS (also known as Islamic State, ISIL and Daesh), the terrorist group has posted photos showing the execution of two more men convicted of homosexual acts.
In graphic images shared online by Terror Monitor, ISIS fighters and a large crowd of men and boys gathered in Aleppo, Syria, to stone two men to death on the grounds that they had engaged in homosexual behavior.
They were dragged, blindfolded, from a car before being thrown to the ground and pelted with heavy rocks that had been assembled nearby.
It’s the latest in a number of similarly barbaric murders of men suspected of being gay by ISIS fighters. In addition to stoning them, ISIS has also thrown men from buildings to their death — both sanctioned forms of execution under the strict interpretation of Sharia law ISIS follows.
In April this year, a man was stoned to death for being gay. That same month, ISIS fighters embraced two men before stoning them to death. In June, three men were dropped from the top of a 100ft high building, while the following month, two more men were dropped from a roof — and then stoned to death after the fall failed to kill them.
