ERBIL, Kurdistan Region- The Islamic State, or ISIS, has blown up on Monday an historic Christian church in Mosul known as the Mother of Aid.

Saeed Mamuzini, media officer of the Mosul branch of the Kurdistan Democratic Party(PDK), told Rudaw the jihadists also killed four children who were near the church at the time of its destruction. 

Mamuzin said the church was located in central of Mosul dates back to thousands of years.

Mosul fell in early June after the rapid capitulation by the Iraqi military, whose members reportedly abandoned their posts as the jihadists advanced. 

After one year of controlling Mosul, the Islamic State has blown up many mosques and churches. In early March, it was reported that ISIS militants used explosives to demolish the much-loved 19th century Hamo mosque, deeming it sacrilegious.

@Ramadan makes you retarded No, they are not true Muslims. If they were true Muslims and they wouldn't be demolishing Mosques that claim are not Islamic enough, especially when they demolished an Ottoman Mosque since May.

While the freedom-loving USA was supporting secular egypt army junta corrupt dictators while they massacred anti-regime coptic christians during the Maspero massacre, it was MUSLIMS who formed human chains around churces to protect coptic christians. These khawarif dogs of isis are as far from islam as the kkk is from christianity. ISIS dogs keep getting killed every day in covert attacks by muslims in Raqqa and Mosul.

If muslims really did hate the christians, they why was this church in iraq for thousands of years in the first place? Spanish inquisition christians forced every last muslim and jew in Iberia to convert to christianity under torture and killed those who refused, thats the reason spain is 100% christian today. If muslims wanted they could have done the same, but forcing people and haram in islam and thats why you have christian communities living in the middle east for thousands of years. These isis dogs know nothing of islam.
