More chilling news from Islamic State terrorists.
They’ve released a video which purportedly shows men using sledgehammers to smash ancient artifacts – in Iraq’s northern city of Mosul.
The group of bearded men are seen in a museum – using hammers and drills to destroy several large statues – including one of an Assyrian winged-bull diety – dating back to the 9th century b.c.
In order to eliminate what it views as heresy – Islamic State has destroyed a number of shrines – including Muslim holy sites.
The terrorists are also believed to have sold ancient artifacts on the black market – to finance their bloody campaign across the region.
