Iraq's Stalingrad

There appears to be little respect for religion during a 'religious' war.
According to Iraqi forces, the mosque was blown up by IS in June 2017.
According to IS the mosque was destroyed in a US air raid, but there was no evidence of this.
The mosque’s leaning 12th Century al-Hadba minaret, one of the Old City’s most famous landmarks, had survived more than eight centuries of invasion and conquest. It finally succumbed on 22 June 2017.
