WORLD HERITAGE IS UNDER ATTACK FROM TERRORISTS AND CRIMINALS
The ISIS Terror group is the face of the most visible campaign of destruction of virtually all cultural icons in the Middle East. The recent destruction of major UNESCO heritage sites in Mosul, Iraq including the archeological treasures of Ancient Nimrud, Khorsabad, Hatra and Ninewa are just the most visible tragedies.
Terror groups across the Middle East, Africa and Asia in addition to having caused the tragic loss of human life, have also committed themselves to absolute elimination of Islamic, Christian, and classical icons and artifacts in an effort to erase the history of those peoples they have killed or sold into slavery.
