WATCH: ISIS Throws 2 ‘Gay Men’ Off Roof & Stones Them

A new video purportedly released by the Islamic State shows two men accused of homosexuality being thrown from a building and stoned by a crowd once they hit the ground. The video was released August 14 and is titled “But Who Is Better Than God In Judgement: Establishing a Limit Upon the People of Lut – Wilayat Homs” or “State of Homs”, a portion of Syria currently occupied by the Islamic State.

According to Jihadology, the title comes from Qur’anic verse 5:50:

“Then is it the judgement of [the time of] ignorance they desire? But who is better than God in judgement for a people who are certain [in faith].”

The term used for men accused of homosexuality in the Islamic State Sharia Law is “liwat.” “Liwat” refers specifically to anal sex but is often used by ISIS-linked Twitter accounts for any act deemed homosexual in Islamist states.

In the video, a masked man reads the charges against the accused gay men before they are led up onto a rooftop and thrown off. A crowd of men wait below and once their bodies hit the ground, they stone them. Afterwards they wash both bodies and prepare them for burial.
