The Islamic State group destroyed the archaeological site of the ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud in northern Iraq, several media reports said Thursday, citing the Iraqi Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities. The attack comes one week after a video showed ISIS militants smashing statues and other priceless cultural treasures with sledgehammers in the Mosul Museum.

Members of the terror group, formerly known as ISIS or ISIL, “assaulted the historic city of Nimrud and bulldozed it with heavy vehicles” shortly after noon prayers on Thursday. (Reuters)
