The brutal ISIS organisation, which has carried out systematic crimes against humanity, has now begun burning books in the city of Mosul.

Mosul, the second largest city in Iraq, has been occupied by ISIS since 10 June 2014. After slaughtering thousands of people and forcing hundreds of thousands more to flee, ISIS has now pillaged the city’s main library.

According to witnesses interviewed by the Associated Press and the Saudi TV channel, Al Arab, ISIS members have taken away more than 2 thousand books in pick-ups and destroyed them.

Amongst these books are said to be children’s books, volumes of poetry, books on philosophy, health, sport and science and newspapers printed around the beginning of the 20th century. It is reported that only Islamic books are not being touched.

A history professor at the University of Mosul told Associated Press that ISIS began destroying books in many libraries last month.

In the central Mosul library there are books dating back 5 thousand years.

Rare witnesses who escape the city say that the ISIS savages are also continuing to destroy churches.
