Islamic State (ISIS) militants in Syria threw a gay couple to their deaths. The two young men were allegedly a gay couple. They were flung from a hospital building in the eastern Deir ez-Zor province on charges of "homosexuality and sodomy".
The jihadist group threw another alleged gay couple off the roof of a building in Mosul, Iraq earlier this month. On the same weekend, another two gay men were thrown from a building in Nineveh into a pile of cement blocks. A crowd of ISIS supporters stoned to death two men accused of being gay in Aleppo, Syria over the weekend.
ISIS has branded LGBT people "the worst of all creatures" and has executed nine men and a boy accused of being gay in Syria last September, and have claimed responsibility for the killings of at least 30 other gay men.
The terrorist group, which operates predominantly across Syria and Iraq, is notorious for filming videos in which captives, usually Westerners or opposing fighters besides homosexuals, are cruelly slaughtered.
Stop this brutality!
