A 15-year-old-boy has been thrown from a rooftop by ISIS militants
A teenage boy who was found engaging in sexual activity with a senior ISIS officer has been thrown from a Syrian rooftop whilst the ISIS member has been sent to the frontlines in Iraq to fight.
According to Syrian news agency, ARA, the teen was reportedly ‘captured’ in the house of ISIS leader Abu Zaid al-Jazrawi on Thursday.
ISIS militants arrested the teen on charges of homosexuality and he was convicted under Sharia law. Abu Zaid al-Jazrawi was also scheduled to be executed however ISIS officers intervened and sent the former leader to fight on the frontline instead.
The boy was thrown from the top of a building in central Deir ez-Zor, Syria.
The UN suggests that more than 30 people have been executed by ISIS in the past 12 months for being gay.
The executive director of the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission, Jessica Stern, said Islamic State’s homophobic violence was inspiring widespread homophobic attacks.
“In addition to men perceived as gay, trans-identified people and lesbians are among those who have been raped and killed,” sais Stern.
