The campaigning group Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently, a Syrian based campaign against ISIS and the Assad regime, have reported that a man accused of being gay was thrown from a building in Iraq and stoned on the ground after surviving the fall.

A crowd on the ground watched as a number of masked men, some of whom were pointing assault rifles at the victim, threw the man from a two storey building, a fall that would not have resulted in his death, but one that would have resulted painful injuries.

One of the photos published shows the man mid fall from the building, as up to eleven men are seen on top of the building. One of the men is flying a flag apparently baring the symbol of ISIS. Meanwhile a photo shows a large crowd of spectators, including children, watching the entire execution.

Homosexuality is forbidden under Islamic State. Men who are accused of homosexual are often thrown from building tops, before being stoned to death as they lay defenceless on the ground from injuries sustained by the fall.

The organization is documenting all kinds of violations, and working on the accounting for the groups which committed these violations by the international community. The organization is completely independent, and does not follow any political or military bodies, whether inside or outside Syria.
