- Depraved ISIS fighters brutally murdered three gay men in the city of Mosul
- Dangled the men from a 100 foot high building before letting them fall
- Huge crowds of bloodthirsty onlookers gathered in the closed street below
- Audience are given rocks to stone the men to death should they survive
Depraved militants fighting for the Islamic State in Iraq have brutally murdered three gay men by throwing them from the top of a high building in front of a huge crowd of bloodthirsty onlookers.
Disturbing photographs of the atrocity – believed to have been taken place in ISIS’ stronghold Mosul – shows one man being dangled over the edge of the building by his ankles before being dropped.
In the event the horrifically injured men are not killed upon impact with the ground, the baying crowd are encouraged to surge forward and stone them to death with a mass of rocks helpfully provided by the ISIS savages who organise the terror group’s sickening public executions.

Moments from death: A second shots shows the blindfolded man tumbling through the air in the sitting position with his legs outstretched as he hurtles towards the ground
In a sequence of images, some of which are far too brutal to publish, the jihadis are seen with the men on the roof of the building before dropping them to their deaths.
In one chilling shot, a man wearing a blue tracksuit is seen being dangled over the edge of the building by his ankles by a leather-jacketed ISIS jihadi just moments away from letting him fall.
A second shots shows the blindfolded man tumbling through the air in the sitting position with his legs outstretched as he hurtles towards the ground.
The building is approximately 100 feet tall, giving the condemned men several seconds of harrowing free-fall before impacting with the ground.
One particularly gruesome image a blindfolded man with a beard is seen tumbling backwards through the air as the bloodied and mangled corpses of his fellow victims lie below.
In a horrific reminder of the local support ISIS has mustered in Mosul, the audience gathered to watch the brutal murders is so large that several militants are deployed as crowd control.
Gathered to watch: The depraved Islamic State militants brutally murdered three gay men by throwing them from the top of a high building in front of a huge crowd of bloodthirsty onlookers
It is far from the first time ISIS savages have murdered men they accused of being gay in this way.
In fact the terror group regularly uses images of men being thrown from buildings in front of baying crowds in its sickening propaganda releases.
One particularity brutal twist is that many of the victims are not immediately killed by the fall. But as one might expect, ISIS has its own particularly barbaric contingency plan for such a circumstance.
The jihadis who organise the public executions always ensure there is a large pile of rocks on hand at the site, which the baying crowd are encouraged to use to stone any survivors to death.
This sickening twist on audience participation is believed to be why attendance at public murders is so high, with men and boys using motorbikes to travel from nearby villages for such events.
The crowds also usually contain groups of niqab-wearing women, who are granted special permission to leave their homes in order to witness the atrocities.

The images were released the U.S.-led coalition against ISIS doubled down on its strategy to fight the extremists, insisting on staying the course it set last year despite the radical group’s recent conquests on both sides of the border between Iraq and Syria.
Yesterday Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi pressed his case for more support from the 25 countries in the coalition at a one-day Paris conference on fighting the militant group, organized within weeks of the fall of the Iraqi city of Ramadi and the Syrian city of Palmyra.
The coalition has mustered a mix of airstrikes, intelligence sharing and assistance for Iraqi ground operations against the extremists.
Al-Abadi said more was needed – his country reeling after troops pulled out of Ramadi without a fight and abandoned U.S.-supplied tanks and weapons.
‘We will redouble our efforts,’ said Deputy Secretary of State Tony Blinken, who was leading the delegation after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry broke his leg in a cycling accident in eastern France over the weekend.
IS, Blinken said, ‘stands for nothing and depends on people who will fall for anything.
