ISIS Releases The Video Of The Nimrud Demolition
The ISIS obviously holds nothing sacred, as it demolished yet another cultural treasure in Iraq. The ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud was leveled with the ground in March, the latest footage released by ISIS show. The city of Nimrud lied not far from Mosul, an ISIS stronghold in Iraq.
The video released by ISIS on Saturday, shows the ancient archeological site attacked by the terrorists of ISIS. The villains used power tools and hammers to destroy the site, finishing it off with dynamite. Ban Ki Moon, the Secretary General of the United Nations Organization, called this attack a war crime, but the terrorists were nothing short of proud of their misdeeds.
Islam forbids any idolatry, so the statues were targeted as something that offend Islam. “These antiquities and idols behind me were from people in past centuries and were worshiped instead of God. When God Almighty orders us to destroy these statues, idols and antiquities, we must do it, even if they’re worth billions of dollars,” explained one of the attackers.
The world can only hope that this is the last time an invaluable cultural heritage has been erased from existence, but with the militant ISIS still holding strong, the hope is weak.
