By: Ismail Zabeeh

MOSUL, Iraq: The terrorist organization Daash has demolished the lighthouse of the mosque of the Prophet Zarzis, central Mosul (405 km north of Baghdad), turning the place into a parking lot, a local source in Nineveh province told on Thursday 21 May.

The source said that "elements of Daash have, today, removed the lighthouse of mosque and the shrine of the Prophet Zarzis in the Prophet Zarzis area, the center of Mosul, with bulldozers and excavators," noting that "the lighthouse is the only remaining of the shrine of the Prophet Zarzis after Daash bombed it earlier. "

The source, who asked not to be named, said: "Daash has removed the entire lighthouse and tuned the place to the parking lot."

In July 2014, Daash blew the mosque and the shrine of the Prophet Zarzis in a move to destroy shrines of the prophets and saints in the city of Mosul.
