Sharia teaches that homosexuality is a vile form of fornication and is punishable by death. In Syria’s eastern city of Deir ex-Zor however, a high-ranking ISIS leader raped a 15-year-old. The young boy was then sentenced to death by throwing him off a roof for being homosexual. The leader was expelled to Iraq.
The boy was arrested in the house of the ISIS leader, according to sources who had spoken with the ARA News. “The boy was accused of being engaged in a homosexual relation with the prominent ISIS officer Abu Zaid al-Jazrawi,” media activist Sarai al-Din told ARA News. The boy was thrown off the roof while a large crowd was watching. “Abu Zaid was forced to leave Syria and join the fighting fronts in northwestern Iraq. The decision has been taken by the ISIS leadership,” al-Din added. The Sharia Court in Deir ez-Zor had also ruled for Abu Zaid to be executed but the ISIS top leaders unanimously decided otherwise.
The ISIS had also thrown two men off a roof back in October of 2015 for being gay, according to a related report from the ARA News. The terrorist group had killed dozens of men it accused as gays in Syria and Iraq in 2015. According to civil rights activists Raed Ahmed, the men were killed without evidence. The ISIS had accused them of being gay on the basis of superficial information without investigation, he said. “Although the Islamic law bans homosexuality, but the brutal punishment by [ISIS] has never been witnessed throughout history,” he stressed.
