ISIS publicly executed nine men and a boy aged 15 in Syria for being gay yesterday, the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights has claimed.
It said seven men were shot dead in Rastan, in the Homs province of central Syria, after they were accused of being homosexuals.
Two other men and the teenager were executed in the town of Hreitan in northern Aleppo, according to the Observatory’s head, Rami Abdel Rahman.
He told MailOnline the boy was arrested earlier this year, when he was 14, and locked up until he was senselessly killed.
Meanwhile, gruesome footage – thought to have been filmed earlier this year – has emerged showing hooded ISIS fighters marching ten suspected spies into the desert and shooting them in the head from point blank range.
Rahman claimed the executions of the men accused of homosexuality were all carried out in front of a large crowd, but ISIS fighters destroyed any cameras used to film the murders.
The terror group has released several propaganda videos and images which show alleged homosexuals being thrown off tall buildings and stoned to death in front of a baying crowd.
Last month, ISIS’s latest ‘roof top execution’ showed two men being thrown from a roof in Homs before they were stoned by a bloodthirsty mob, which included children.
It has been Islamic State’s preferred method of murder for the men they suspect of being gay, an ‘offence’ which is punishable by death.
