REPORTS have emerged that ISIS have stoned two gay men to death in Syria.

According to the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights, the executions, which allegedly took place on Tuesday, are believed to be the militant organisation’s first in relation to alleged homosexuality.

The two men, aged 20 and 18, were reportedly killed in the eastern province of Deir Ezzor near the border of Iraq.

The executions came about after ISIS found videos on the 20-year-old’s mobile phone that appeared to show him “practising indecent acts with males”.

The 18-year-old met his fate just based on accusations alone.

The two men were also reportedly opponents of ISIS, but homosexuality was used as an excuse for their murder.
