Iraqi Forces Capture ISIS Executioner Abu Omer Who Brutally Murdered Gay Men

 

Via The Sun:

The jihadi kingpin – nicknamed “White Beard” – is said to have presided over dozens of killings in the terror group’s former stronghold of Mosul.

But now the bearded killer has been nabbed after locals revealed his hiding place in the city, according to AhlulBayt News Agency.

The sick jihadi, identified as Abu Omer, was one of the terror group’s most fearsome henchmen.

He was reportedly present when homosexuals were thrown from buildings and victims beheaded and stoned to death for minor offences.

In one such clip from March 2015, three men accused of homosexuality and blasphemy are forced to their knees and publicly beheaded.

The blindfolded men are seen kneeling in the centre of what appears to be a roundabout in front of a crowd of people as a masked executioner stands by with a long, rusty blade.

An elderly man that appears to be Omer addresses the crowd as the executioner positions his sword above the men’s heads in the unnamed city in northern Iraq.

Abu Omer’s capture means the ISIS chief now faces the possibility of his own execution.

The line forms behind me.
