ISIS throw 15-year-old boy off a roof for being gay
A teenage boy has reportedly been thrown off a roof by ISIS militants in Syria after he was accused of being homosexual, but the Islamist who raped him was spared a death sentence.
The 15-year-old boy was pushed to his death off a high building in Deir ezzor province in Syria.
The ISIS commander who raped him is believed to be Abu Zaid al-Jazrawi, who previously appeared in a video showing child soldiers executing prisoners in a sickening twist on the game of hide and seek.
Al-Jazrawi was reportedly flogged and sent to fight on the frontline in Iraq as punishment.
One witness said that the execution took place in public, in front of a large gathering of local civilians in the area.
Video footage and photos have yet to emerge of the incident, which was revealed by 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.
‘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 said.
It has been claimed the boy was arrested inside the house of the ISIS commander, who is originally thought to be from Saudi Arabia.
Homosexuality is considered an offence punishable by death, in accordance to ISIS’s radical interpretation of Sharia law.
The victim was tried by an Islamic court in Deir ezzor before he was sentenced to death.
MailOnline has not been able to independently verify these claims but ISIS has previously publicly executed men in a similar manner for being found guilty of homosexuality.
The barbaric video al-Jazrawi appeared in last year showed children, who appear to be no older than eight, running around an abandoned castle with guns until they found prisoners and shot them in the head at close range.
After finishing the task, the child soldiers return to their instructor and hand the balaclava and handgun to next boy.
Each time, the prisoners are found in different locations and have no chance to escape. One of the victims is beheaded at the end of the video.
The prisoners are described as ‘sons of Jews’ and accused of spying for the Assad regime.
Reports stated that the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights had identified al-Jazrawi in the sickening video.
