ISIS execution

Four gay men were executed by members of the Islamic State following the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide Friday.

As was reported by a Syrian Twitter user on a tweet posted on the #LoveWins hashtag and picked up by Gateway Pundit, the men were thrown off the roof of a highrise building in the Syrian city of Deir ez-Zor as a crowd gathered to watch below.

Several Islamists also reportedly sent out anti-gay messages on the social networking site using the hashtag #LoveWins. That hashtag was used by many worldwide to celebrate the ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges.

According to The Mirror, videotaped footage of the executions show that the men were forced to line up atop the five-story building before being thrown over the edge. There are no audible screams from the men as they plunge to their deaths, however spectators can be heard gasping as the bodies descended from the sky.

ISIS has long been critical of homosexual individuals, and has publicly executed men over their sexual orientation in the past who are exposed as gay by its “flirting squads.” Earlier this month, the group released graphic footage of its members dangling gay men over the edge of a building before dropping them to their death. The men are then stoned if they manage to survive the fall.

In January, two men were executed after being thrown off a rooftop in Iraq's Nineveh Province. Several others were reportedly executed in Deir ez-Zor in April, as well.
