BREAKING: Over 10 MILLION Muslims Are Extremely PISSED OFF Right Now- They Just Lost EVERYTHING

Dean James III% AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

The Islamic State (Daesh) destroyed the famous al-Nuri mosque in Mosul, Iraq the army reported today. 

The mosque, also identified as Mosul’s Great Mosque, was known as the location where ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared an Islamic caliphate in 2014. That occurred after the city was overtaken by the militants. At the time, it was seen as a top symbolic prize in the battle for Iraq’s second largest city.

AA.com reports that the terror group destroyed the building “and its minarets while our forces were 50 meters [164 feet] away”, Lt. Gen. Abdulemir Yarullah of Operations Command in Mosul said in a statement.

Responding to the destruction, coalition commander Maj. Gen. Joseph Martin said Daesh “destroyed one of Mosul and Iraq’s great treasures.

“This is a crime against the people of Mosul and all of Iraq, and is an example of why this brutal organization must be annihilated,” he said.

“The responsibility of this devastation is laid firmly at the doorstep of ISIS, and we continue to support our Iraqi partners as they bring these terrorists to justice,” he added, referring to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, another name for Daesh.

Daesh announced its so-called caliphate at the historic mosque in 2014.

Iraqi forces began fresh operations Sunday, aimed at retaking Mosul’s Old City, a densely-populated maze of narrow alleys where fighting is usually conducted house to house.

Backed by air cover provided by a U.S.-led coalition, the Iraqi military is currently engaged in a months-long campaign to recapture Mosul, Daesh’s last stronghold in northern Iraq.
