ISIS fighters blindfolded a man and made him flee through a field in Syria before stoning him to death.
Dozens of civilians witnessed the killing, east of the city of Homs, after the fighters charged the man with being ‘homosexual’.
A group of men in military fatigues blindfolded the man, according to Gay Star News, forcing him to flee through a field as they hurled rocks at him.
It’s the latest in a series of brutal murders of gay people in territories controlled by ISIS, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
SOHR said that the man had been charged with being ‘homosexual’, before being murdered alongside a supposed collaborator with Bashar al-Assad’s forces, who was beheaded.
The organisation said, ‘SOHR was informed that the IS slaughtered and beheaded a man in the eastern countryside of Homs in the charge of dealing with regime forces.
‘IS stoned a man to death in the charge of “Homosexual” in the presence of dozens of civilians east of Homs.’
In February, ISIS militants killed one man by throwing him from a seven-storey building in Syria, and another was thrown to his death for being gay by militants in Iraq.
Two men were stoned to death in the Syrian city of Raqqa in November, while a separate incident last December saw a gay man thrown off a rooftop and stoned to death for committing an alleged act of blasphemy.
