| by Lisa Fogarty

Islamic State terrorists reportedly threw a man they suspected of being a homosexual off the top of a building in Raqqa and filmed him as he hit the ground and died in front of a mob of people.

The incident reportedly took place in the Jihadi capital in Syria after members of ISIS blindfolded the man, who is said to have been in his 20s, and dragged him to the top of a multi-story building, reports the Daily Mail. Once on the roof, three masked members reportedly helped throw him off while two undisguised, but armed, militants filmed it using their phones.

The footage was reportedly released by an activist group called Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently, which works undercover within ISIS.

This is one of several images that came out in January and February showing ISIS throwing men off of buildings because they suspected them of being gay. In previous incidents, some of the victims actually survived their falls and were then stoned to death by people waiting below.
