ISIS used bulldozers to destroy the ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud, according to Iraqi authorities.
- IS has attacked the historic city Nimrud and destroyed it with the use of heavy vehicles, according to a statement from Iraq's ministry of tourism and antiquities.
An official confirms the news and says the devastation started after the prayer at midday Thursday and that trucks may have been used to carry away the statues.
- We do not know how extensive the damage is yet, said the official who did not wish to be named.
Nimrud was founded in the 13th century BC and was a major city on the banks of Tigris in ancient Assyria. It is located 30 kilometers south of Iraq's second largest city Mosul, which is ISIS' headquarter in Iraq.
The extremist group The Islamic state (IS) recently destroyed a number of irreplaceable antique art and cultural treasures at the museum in Mosul.
