An ISIS executioner captured by Iraqi security forces tortured and executed gay men, according to reports.
Abu Omer, known under his alias White Beard, was caught on camera appearing to stone civilians to death under the militant group’s rule in Mosul, Iraq.
The AhlulBayt News Agency reports residents revealed his hiding place to Iraqi security forces, and he was swiftly arrested.
Dozens of images of gay men being murdered in Iraq and Syria have been leaked on social media, published on ISIS channels, or sent to Arabic-speaking journalists.
ISIS members have previously referred to gay people as the ‘worst of creatures’.
The executions typically follow a pattern. It is believed the extremists often drug the victim. They will then blindfold them, cuff their hands behind their backs, and lead them to the top of a high building.
A mob will be awaiting the execution. The killers will announce the man was found guilty of homosexuality. They will then hurl him off the edge.
If he survives the fall, a crowd gathered will stone the man to death.
