Islamic State announce seized Mosul cathedral to be named the “mosque of the mujahedeen”

One year after the fall of Mosul to Islamic State, militants posted notices around the captured city announcing that the Syriac Orthodox Cathedral Church of St Ephrem, seized a year ago is to be turned into the“mosque of the mujahedeen” (jihad fighters).

Archbishop Nicodemus Daoud of Mosul broke down and wept last year as he told Barnabas about the fate of his cathedral. The jihadist flag stating, “There is no God but Allah” and “Prophet Muhammad” was draped over the building and last July the militants took down the cross from the church’s dome.
