ISIS militants execute 15-year-old Syrian boy

By Troy Nankervis

Islamic State militants have thrown a 15-year-old boy from the rooftop of a northern Syrian city building.

The execution took place before a large crowd in the Syrian city of Deir ez-Sor on Friday, where the boy was blindfolded and pushed to his death, reports ARA News.

While photographs of the incident are available online Attitude Magazine has decided against publishing these.

The sickening act reportedly followed allegations the boy was involved a gay relationship with ISIS officer Abu Zaid al-Jazrawi.

Sources say that ISIS leaders decided to demote and relocate Zaid al-Jazrawi to join the fighting frontline in Iraq, despite being also sentenced to death under Sharia law.

It is under the terrorist group’s reading of Sharia law, the Advocate reports those convicted of homosexual “crimes” are to be thrown from “the tallest building in the city where the victim was arrested”.

It is the group’s latest atrocity of targeting those who are accused or confirmed of being gay in regions of the Middle East controlled by the terrorist group.

While no official figures exist on the number of gay executions conducted by ISIS, the Advocate adds a United Nations meeting which took place in August last year in New York estimated some 30 people had been killed in the 12 months prior.
