Islamic State militants hurl 'gay' man to his death in Syria

Al-Asharah:  IS militants executed an allegedly homosexual man in eastern Syria by pushing him off a hospital roof, a monitoring group reported on Thursday.

The unnamed man was hurled to his death from the roof of a hospital in the town of al-Ashara in Syria`s eastern Deir Ezzor province, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.

The man, who came from the city of al-Mayadin, was accused by IS of being a `sodomite`, reported the Britain-based watchdog, which receives its information from activists and doctors inside Syria.

In Deir Ezzor and other territory under its control, IS metes out savage `Islamic` punishments including hurling alleged homosexuals off buildings to their deaths, beheading alleged spies and mutilating alleged thieves.
