Two men were hurled from the top of a tower block, two more were crucified in front of a baying crowd and a woman was stoned to death in the latest series of horrific executions by ISIS.
The men were thrown from the roof down to the crowd below in the brutal punishment for being gay.
Charges found against the accused were announced by a masked Islamic State fighter, using a small handheld radio. Reading from a list, he declares the men are guilty of engaging in homosexual activities and should be punished by death, in accordance with Islamic State’s radical interpretation of Sharia law.
Down on the ground, two men accused of banditry have been tied to makeshift metal crosses.
Strung up tightly with yellow and green ribbon around their wrists, the men were hanged from the crosses, wincing in agony’.
They had been tied up and transported in the back of a white pickup truck to the public execution sight in the Iraqi city of Mosul.
Both prisoners are shown wearing casual clothing rather than the standard orange jumpsuit, commonly worn by many Islamic State prisoners in recent many high profile execution videos.
Their blindfolds appear to have partially slipped from their eyes, allowing them to possibly see the surrounding hostile crowd.
Two masked IS fighters, dressed in khaki military fatigues are photographed standing behind the two crucified men. Upon drawing their pistols, the fighters shoot the two alleged bandits in cold blood. Their motionless bodies remain tied to the metal crosses to the delight of the all male crowd.
It is not the first time Islamic State have released photographic evidence of the horrific execution of homosexuals in Iraq. In December 2014, photos emerged on social media showing a man, accused of being homosexual, being thrown to his death from a rooftop by eight IS fighters.
The horrific punishment was reportedly carried out in the Iraqi province of al-Furat. The victim’s broken body is photographed on the dirty road, lying outside the steps of the orange patterned building. Two other men were also crucified for alleged rape crimes. Their bodies are shown lying tied up to the railings of a nearby fence.
Standing nearby is Abu Omar al-Ansari, an elderly Islamic State fighter, with a thick beard of white facial hair. Al-Ansari rose to fame as a propaganda figure, appearing in a video entitled ‘Message of the Mujahid’, in which he urges other Iraqis to join Islamic State.
Al-Ansari, who appears shabbily dressed in a black robe and a pair of combat boots, is shown shown reading out the crimes against a woman, accused of adultery. The woman is dressed in a full black burqa.
The final two photos show the burqa clad woman being stoned to death by a horde of Islamic State militants, hurling large rocks at the woman.
Lying on the ground surrounded by a pile of rocks, her bright red socks are still visible. An old piece of blue tarpaulin was then used to cover the dead woman’s body as the militants disperse from the horrific scene.
It appears the stoning was not carried out at the public execution site like the city’s main square. Instead, she appears to have been stoned in a quieter residential area, away from the baying crowd.
