The Iraqi Director of Antiquities has confirmed that the Islamic State (IS, ISIS, ISIL) destroyed portions of the historical city of Dur-Sharrukin (Khorsabad).
The only historical site that has remained untouched by the IS is the historical Assyrian capital of Ashur.
The destruction of these sites is part of the groups campaign to “erase the history of humanity.”
