ISIS fanatic uses a HAMMER to destroy ancient treasures because they are symbols of ‘Satan worship’

This is the moment an ISIS extremist uses a sledgehammer to destroy ancient Syrian treasures.

Footage shows a fanatic crushing artefacts found west of Abu Kamal in the Deir Ezzor province of Syria, close to the country’s border with Iraq.

The jihadist rants that the items are being destroyed because they were ‘created by Satan and worshipped instead of Allah.’
