Mosul (IraqiNews.com) Today the Mosque of Prophet Yunus, Biblical Jonah, was completely destroyed by terrorists of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant after they had already destroyed and looted the graves of prophet Yunus (Jonah) and prophet Shayth (Biblical Seth) on July 4th, as first reported by IraqiNews.com.

ISIL terrorists ordered everyone out of the Mosque of the Prophet Yunus before detonating and demolishing it, declaring that “the mosque had become a place for apostasy, not prayer.” The explosions damaged nearby homes.

One of the pictures show heavy plumes of smoke from the scene, while another picture shows the shrine which was blown up entirely amid people gathered around it.
