3 Prophets Shrines in Mosul dynamited

By: Ismail Zabeeh

MOSUL, Iraq: ISIS terrorists known as Daash in Arabic have blown up on Sunday the third holy shrine of a prophet in the city of Mosul, an official and witnesses said.

They destroyed the Prophet Zarzis (Nabi Jarjis) shrine on Sunday, the Prophet Seth (Nabi Sheet or Shees) shrine on Friday, in Mosul, the de facto Iraqi capital of the “caliphate” proclaimed last month by ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

“ ISIS terrorists stopped people from coming close, set explosives in and around the shrine and then detonated them as a crowd looked on,” one resident who witnessed the demolition told AFP.

Seth is revered in Christianity, Islam and Judaism.

Sami al-Massoudi, the deputy head of the Shiite endowment agency overseeing holy sites, confirmed that terrorists blew up the shrines and added that they took some of the artifacts to an unknown location.

“These people follow this impossible religious doctrine according to which they must destroy or kill anything or anybody deviating from their views,” he said.

“That simply has nothing to do with Islam.”

The latest destruction comes a day after ISIS terrorists completely leveled the reputed tomb of Jonah (Nabi Younis) Thursday in Mosul, sparking an outcry among religious officials.
