Ghurairy said in an interview with IraqiNews.com that “after the crime of exploding the shrine of Prophet Yunus ISIL’s popularity has fallen dramatically and a big demonstration formed after Friday prayers criticizing this action, but the gangs ISIL arrested its leadership and flogged everyone of them a hundred lashes.”

Ghurairy added that “the terrorist gangs of ISIL carried out a strange procedure after Friday prayers. They searched residential buildings in the neighborhood of the Yonus shrine under the pretext that they were looking for government informants who are leaking information and images of ISIL’s crimes.”

Yesterday, the Mosque of Prophet Yunus, Biblical Jonah, was completely destroyed by terrorists of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Also, the organization of ISIL had destroyed a number of shrines under the pretext that they represented signs of polytheism according to their extreme interpretation of Sharia Law.

  1. These distruction of mosque s shrines are with the order of al soud monarchies and is going to destroy the image of islam. They want to rule for worldly affair.

    • These acts are in fact destroying the good and real face of Islam. And they are projecting a very bad Islamic face, which does not even exist in Islam.

  2. You terrorists isil.,!!! What your doing is nothing to do with islam how could you destroy our beloved prophet younis grave and mosque fear Allah you evil humans of earth Fear Allah.,!!!! May Allahs curse be upon you you shall suffer greatly for your crimes our religion is about peace not about voilence and unlawful killing and destroying of historic islamic buildings i pray that all isil evil thugs burn in hell for what you are doing!!!

  3. It is awful to hear about these demonical acts. It is unclear to me how can they act in such an extreme fashion against the simbols of the religion that they pretent to represent. They have embodied evil itself and all of those that oppose them must unite to eliminate this power or else it will spread. I’m a jewish man from Israel and I send my condolences to the Iraqi people in these harsh times.

  4. IT IS TIME FOR ALL IRAQIS OFF ALL FAITHS/CREEDS TO RISE UP TOGETHER…AND EXPEL THESE ISIS________FOREIGNERS…FOR THESE CRIMES+THE SENSE-LESS MURDER OFF WOMEN/CHILDREN …THE PEOPLE OFF IRAQ DESERVE PEACE NOW..SO UNITE AND FIGHT FOR IT..
