Blindfolded Gay Man Thrown Off Tower By ISIS Survives Fall, Stoned To Death By Syrian Villagers

ISIS has reportedly executed another gay man by throwing him off a tower block in Syria for ‘being gay.’

The man was reportedly blindfolded before he was pushed off the tower, but was stoned to death by a waiting crowd after he survived the fall.


Images have emerged showing ISIS militants carrying out the heinous crime in the town of Tal Abyad in Raqqa. The victim was supposedly being punished for having a ‘homosexual affair.’



According to the DailyMail:

The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which relies on a network of activists on the ground, claims the man was thrown from the building before being beaten to death.

Photographs of the incident appear to show the man – who is thought to be in his 50s – sat on a white, plastic chair while blindfolded.

He is surrounded by at least two masked militants, who are dressed in black clothing and army fatigues.
The man is then thrown from the top of the tower block and one photograph shows him falling towards the ground, head first.

It is believed a ‘judgement’ was read aloud before he was thrown, which condemned his sexuality and claimed he should be thrown from the highest point of the city as punishment.

After falling to the ground, the man can then be seen sat at the foot of the building, having apparently survived the fall.

One photograph shows another man, dressed in army fatigues and carrying a portable radio, seemingly checking on the man’s condition.

An aerial photograph then shows the waiting crowd forming a circle around the injured man before hurling rocks and stones at him. It is understood he died from his injuries.



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.
