Security forces capture ISIS executioner who threw gay men off buildings

Security forces in Iraq have captured a ISIS executioner who was notorious for homophobic murders.

Thousands of LGBT people have been displaced in Iraq and Syria, as the terrorist group known as ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria)
continues to actively target and execute gay men.

The terrorist group has taunted the West with a string of  ‘death to gays’ execution videos, showing men accused of homosexuality being thrown off buildings and pelted with stones.

One of the ISIS executioners who most aggressively targeted gay people was captured this week.

Abu Omer, a senior jihadi executioner known as ‘White Beard’, had ruled the city of Mosul with an iron fist until the city was retaken by security forces last year.

The terrorist had remained in Mosul, hiding out in a safe house to evade detection.

But according to The Times, he was arrested on January 1 after officials were tipped off about his hiding place in the city.

Pictures in local media confirmed the arrest of a man who appears to be Omer.

But US Lieutenant General Paul Funk, the officer commanding the coalition troops in Iraq warned that the “repressive ideology” of ISIS continues to thrive issue in the region.

He added: “The conditions remain present for Daesh to return, and only through coalition and international efforts can the defeat become permanent.”
