“Dead bodies of Jihadists are everywhere. Two legs of an ISIS soldier flew away. The last dead bodies are at the main entrance of the Chaldean Church of Our Mother of Perpetual help in Mosul, the first church in Mosul liberated from ISIS,” Fausto Biloslavo, Italian war report writes on the columns of Occhi della Guerra.
On the wall close to the entrance, there is some writing left: “Do not enter! By order of the Islamic State,” Biloslavo reports from Mosul. According to emerging reports, ISIS fighters quickly identified the church as an ideal location for their religious police and set up a headquarters there. That process involved the complete desecration of the church’s interior and destruction of all statues adorning the interior.
