ISIS Video Shows This Landmark As Their Next Target [VIDEO]

Nabu Temple, Iraq

ISIS’s efforts to destroy ancient landmarks in Iraq are succeeding. 

ISIS’s most recent video shows ISIS blowing up the temple of Nabu (the Babylonian god of wisdom) located south of Mosul, Iraq. It was more than 2,500-years-old. Information about the temple was shown before it was destroyed.

The video also shows images of demolished iconic gates: the Adad and Mashki gates within the ancient site of Nineveh, near Mosul. They were reported to have been destroyed in April, but this is the first video evidencing the gates being destroyed with a bulldozer.

Another image depicts a massive explosion in the ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud.

But Iraq isn’t the only goal of ISIS’s destruction. These “junior league” terrorists are also focused on Egypt.

This jihadist vows that Egypt’s ancient and iconic pyramids are next.
