This is coolbert:

What was feared and expected has apparently begun.

ISIS destroys shrines, Shiite mosques in Iraq,

"Jihadists who overran Mosul last month have demolished ancient shrines and mosques in and around the historic northern Iraqi city, residents and social media posts said Saturday."

"At least four shrines to Sunni Arab or Sufi figures have been demolished, while six Shiite mosques, or husseiniyahs, have also been destroyed, across militant-held parts of northern Nineveh province, of which Mosul is the capital."

Shia mosques. shrines and items of antiquity, Christian churches. All destroyed.

Shia pilgrims too making holy pilgrimage now unable to do so I would have to assume. Deliberate and malicious destruction of Islamic sites ONLY inflaming already high tensions.
