ISIS destroys heritage site… again

A shocking video has emerged of ISIS thugs using sledgehammers and AK-47 rifles to destroy walls and statues in Iraq’s UNESCO World Heritage city of Hatra.

In the slickly produced seven minute footage, jihadists are shown smashing shrines and statues in the 2,000-year old city.

Militants are also recorded chipping away at the bases of some of the larger wall sculptures and cracking boulders into ancient city pillars, while eerie music plays in the background.
