One Martyred , 32 Injured in a Rocket attack at the Holy Shrine at Samara by the ISIL Terrorists


Holy Shrine of Imam Hassan Al Askari in Samara , Iraq Hit by TerroristsJNN 04 July 2014 Baghdad : Rocket attacks on the holy shrines of Imam Hasan al-Askari  (AS) in the city of Samarra, Iraq, have left one person martyred and 32 others wounded.

Within hours after the attacks on Monday, the Iraqi air force targeted and destroyed the launch sites, Buratha news agency reported.

The Takfiri militants of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) are thought to be behind the assaults.

The militant attack came just two days after government forces cleared militants out of an area near Samarra.

The city, located nearly 120 kilometers (74 miles) north of Baghdad, is home to the holy shrines of two Shia Imams and a major pilgrimage site visited by tens of millions of Muslims annually despite the tense security situation in the area.

Over the past days, Iraqi armed forces have been engaged in fierce clashes with the terrorists, who have threatened to take their acts of violence to other Iraqi cities, including the capital, Baghdad. However, the ISIL’s advance has been slowed down as Iraqi military and volunteer forces have begun engaging them on several fronts.

Senior Muslim clerics have condemned the ISIL atrocities, including mass executions and rape.

Takfiri Terrorists Destroys 2 Imambargahs ( Hussainiyah ) in Mosul  

Takfiri militants of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) have destroyed two Shia religious sites (Hussayniyah) located north of Iraq’s second largest city of Mosul, reports say.

The ISIL Takfiri militants blew up the holy sites with explosive devices in the villages of Sharikhan and al-Qubbah in the north of the country, Iraqi media sources said on Wednesday.

Hundreds of residents in the two villages have fled their homes following the attacks.

The assaults come a day after the ISIL Takfiri militants destroyed a religious site in the west of Mosul.

The terrorists reportedly used bulldozers to tear down the shrine of Fathi al-Ka’en.

The ISIL Takfiri militants also issued a statement this week calling for the destruction of all religious and historic sites in the country, media reports said.

Witnesses said the militants had destroyed symbols of Iraq’s heritage in the city of Mosul, including statues of cultural icons and the tomb of a medieval philosopher.
