IS Vandalizes Churches In Iraq, Removing Crosses Atop Them, Destroying Statues

SHAFAQNA – On March 16, 2015, the Islamic State (ISIS) published a collection of images showing an array of acts of vandalism perpetrated against churches in Ninawa, Iraq. The images show ISIS men engaged in the destruction of various Christian symbols, which ISIS perceives as being polytheistic and idolatrous. The men remove crosses from atop churches and replace them with the black ISIS banner, destroy crosses at other locations such as atop doorways and gravestones, and destroy and remove icons and statues inside and outside churches.
