Daesh razes Iraq’s oldest monastery

The Takfiri Daesh terrorists have destroyed the oldest Christian monastery in Iraq as they continue with their demolition campaign against historical and religious sites in the areas under their control.

Satellite images released by the Associated Press on Wednesday showed a pile of rubble at the location of St. Elijah’s Monastery, situated south of the city of Mosul in northern Iraq.

The monastery, which had survived for more than 1,400 years, is believed to have been damaged at some point in 2014, after Daesh took control of the area in June that year.
