Several sources from the Middle East revealed that The Iraqi Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities announced that ISIS is deliberately bulldozing the ancient Assyrian city of Nimrod in the north of the country Thursday, after nearly a week of publishing a video showing the effects of the destruction in the city of Mosul.
The ministry said the extremist organization has today, “assaulted the city of Nimrud archaeological site and razed by heavy military vehicles,” in a statement posted on the official page of the Department of Media Relations.
