(Scroll down for video) Terrorists who took over Iraq, were seen taking a sledgehammer to the tomb of Prophet Jonah, according to video uploaded to the Internet.
ISIS militants mercilessly tore apart the ancient tomb in the city of Mosul.
The terrorists dressed in black coats destroyed the tombs, amid swirls of dust and rock piles. It is not known when the video was recorded.
Officials have confirmed that one of the broken tombs belonged to the prophet Jonah, who is revered by Muslims and Christians alike, and is best known as the main character of the book Jonah.
According to the famous story of the prophet, he was swallowed by a giant fish. He is regarded as a saint by a number of Christian denominations.
ISIS has controlled the mosque built around the tomb of Prophet Jonah in Mosul, since they invaded the city.
