ISIS begin the destruction of Palmyra: Islamic extremists blow up two mausoleums in the ancient Syrian city... including one belonging to a descendant of the Prophet Mohammed ...




Barbarians fighting for the Islamic State in Syria have destroyed two mausoleums in the ancient city of Palmyra, the country's antiquities director confirmed today.
ISIS captured the central Syrian city on May 21, sparking immediate fears that they would take sledgehammers to its well-preserved Greco-Roman ruins as they have done at other historic sites.
Those fears are now beginning to be realised, with the extremists reportedly using explosives to destroy ancient Islamic and pre-Islamic sites in the city - including the tombs of descendants of the Prophet Mohammed - which the terror group claim serve only to distract from the worship of Allah.
Destruction: ISIS jihadis used explosives to blow up the tomb of Mohammed bin Ali - a descendant of Prophet Mohammed's cousin - in a mountainous region almost three miles north of Palmyra

Syria's antiquities director Maamoun Abdulkarim said ISIS blew up the tombs of Mohammed bin Ali, a descendant of the Prophet Mohammed's cousin, and Nizar Abu Bahaaeddine, a religious figure from Palmyra, three days ago.
Bin Ali's burial place is located in a mountainous region almost three miles north of Palmyra.
Abu Bahaaeddine's tomb, nestled in a leafy oasis about 500 yards from Palmyra's ancient ruins, is said to be more than five centuries old.

In total ISIS has destroyed at least 50 mausoleums dating between 100-200 years old in the regions under its control in north and east Syria, the antiquities director said.
'They consider these Islamic mausoleums to be against their beliefs, and they ban all visits to these sites,' Abulkarim added. 
Ten days ago, fighters from the jihadist group also destroyed a number of tombstones at a cemetery for Palmyra residents, Abulkarim revealed.
'All tombs with marble designs were destroyed. For them, graves should not be visible,' he said.

The extremist group captured Palmyra, a renowned UNESCO World Heritage site, from pro-government forces on May 21.
At the weekend, ISIS fighters mined the city's ancient site, renewing fears that they would demolish the famed ruins as they have other historic sites in Iraq.
American and Arab airstrikes on ISIS targets have already damaged a number of ancient buildings in Palmyra, although the majority of historic structures and monuments remain untouched.
Syria's army has advanced in recent days west of the city, near key oil and gas fields.
ISIS has proclaimed a caliphate to rule over all Muslims from territory it holds in both Syria and Iraq.
Its militants have a history of carrying out mass killings in towns and cities they capture and of destroying ancient monuments which they consider evidence of paganism.

SICKENING NEW ISIS VIDEO SHOWS CAGED PRISONERS LOWERED INTO A SWIMMING POOL AND DROWNED, SHOT WITH AN RPG AND BLOWN UP WITH EXPLOSIVE-FILLED 'NECKLACES' 

Vile jihadis fighting for the Islamic State in Iraq have brutally murdered five prisoners by locking them in a metal cage and lowering them into a swimming pool.
Filmed in the ISIS stronghold of Mosul, the sickening seven minute long video uses expensive underwater cameras to film the terrified men as they sink below the surface with no hope of escape.
Shortly afterwards the cage is lifted back out of the water, with the dying men - who are understood to have been accused of spying - seen foaming at the mouth as they lie motionless on the floor of the cage, piled on top of one another.

Elsewhere in the video, ISIS militants are filmed brutally killing prisoners by locking them in a car and shooting them with a grenade launcher, while another group of jihadis chain a set of prisoners together with explosive necklaces which are then detonated.
The barbaric video is a new low for the terror group, whose catalogue of horrific filmed murders includes the savage beheading of several British and American hostages, the burning to death of Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh and numerous clips of people being shot and stoned to death.
The main section of the film begins with the stomach-churning sight of five men being locked in a tiny metal cage that has been suspended above a luxury swimming pool somewhere in the ISIS-held city of Mosul in Nineveh province. 
Horrific: As the water begins to enter the cage, the victims panic and start praying and pacing the cell

Standing up straight with their legs bound, the men look reasonably calm until the moment the cage begins to be lowered into the pool.

Once completely submerged, the video cuts to the high-tech underwater cameras, which show the men thrashing around until they appear to lose conciousness and fall to the floor. 
The cage is then removed from the pool, with the dying men seen foaming at the mouths as they lie piled on top of one another under the blazing Iraqi sun.
Brutal: Once the cage is submerged, the video cuts to high-tech underwater cameras, which - in images far too horrific to publish - show the men thrashing around until they lose conciousness and fall to the floor
