On October 25, 2015 the ISIS–Aleppo Province posted a series of photos showing the stoning to death of two young men convicted of engaging in homosexual relations. The message, published under the Twitter hashtag "Aleppo Province,"[1] cites Muslim religious texts justifying the execution of homosexuals, such as a hadith according to which the Prophet said, "You must kill anyone when it becomes clear that he engaged in homosexual relations, irrespective of whether he was the active or the passive [partner]". The photos show the two men being stoned in front of a crowd of onlookers, including children.

"Stoning of those who committed the sin of the people of Lot"

"A Muslim audience watches the implementation of Allah's sentence"
