IS Destroys Temple of Baalshamin in Palmyra

From The Telegraph:

Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) have destroyed one of Palmyra’s most well-known ancient temples, according to Syria’s antiquities chief.

Carefully stage-managed photographs by Isil show the moment the terrorist group destroyed the Temple of Baalshamin at the country's ancient city.

The images, released by Isil’s media wing in the central province of Homs, revealed the temple was littered with explosives before it exploded into a mushroom cloud on Sunday.

The full story is here.



  • This site just posted a before and after...I gather someone fixed a video camera on the side of a bus and got some footage. So sad...
