ISIS Executioner Who Threw Gay Men Off Roofs Is Arrested

ISIS Executioner Who Threw Gay Men Off Roofs Is Arrested”

That said, USA forces in Iraq have captured an ISIS member notorious for murdering LGBTQ people.

Abu Omer was arrested after locals in Mosul tipped security forces off to his hideout in the city, the Iran-based AhlulBayt News Agency (ANBA) reported, citing Iraqi media outlets.

Hishimi advises Middle Eastern governments and the Iraqi government on ISIS matters.

A recent report from the Human Rights Campaign highlighted how men alleged to have sex with men are hunted down by ISIS, targeted on social media and subjected to extreme violence.

Abu Omer was a prominent presence in several sick videos of ISIS executions, in which homosexuals were thrown off buildings and others beheaded and stoned to death for minor offenses such as blasphemy.

In one particular 2015 video, he reads the charges of three men whom militants subsequently execute.

Another video shows Omer standing by a mound of rocks that are then used for a public stoning. The use of these types of videos by ISIS has increased, in an attempt to gain notoriety and rally homicidal radicals to its immoral cause. An adviser to the Iraqi government on ISIS has confirmed Iraqi forces have captured the notorious ISIS member.

Iraqi ground forces, backed by the USA -led coalition, recaptured Mosul from ISIS in July a year ago.

The high-ranking member of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, was discovered in a safe house in Mosul, where he had been hiding after the city had been retaken from the terrorist group in 2017.

As US Lieutenant General Paul Funk stated, the city of Mosul and the country of Iraq are still volatile and at the mercy of an unbalanced power struggle.
