ISIS affiliated elements bombed the Iraq’s Green Church, in the middle of Tikrit, about 170 kilometers north of Baghdad, using IEDs, said a Saladin governorate security source.
“ ISIS fighters implanted IEDs inside the green church in the presidential palaces district, leaving it totally devastated,” he said, Thursday, at a press conference..
The church is regarded as one of the oldest Christian houses of worship in the Middle East.
“ The former regime restored the church in 2000. The Saladin governorate made a petition to have it included on the world heritage list,” added the source who asked to remain anonymous.
