BEIRUT, Lebanon — Fighting between Syrian insurgents and government forces in Aleppo left one of the Middle East’s most storied mosques severely damaged on Wednesday, its soaring minaret toppled by explosives. Each side accused the other of responsibility for the destruction at the Umayyad Mosque in Aleppo’s walled ancient city, a Unesco World

The mosque is considered an archaeological treasure but has been a battleground for months. It was first heavily damaged by fighting last October, and President Bashar al-Assad promised a restoration. But the military later retreated from the mosque and rebel fighters have occupied it since early this year.

Syria’s state media said the Nusra Front, an Islamic militant faction of the insurgency, had placed explosives inside the minaret, which dated from the 11th century.

I predict 500 years from now certain devotees will still be killing each other over it.

Maybe we should ship them some bricks and mortar with the next shipment of military supplies, and cash.

Those people are too stupid to understand that if you don't want war to damage your precious little mosque you don't occupy the damn thing with military or rebel forces.

I have a hard time feeling sorry for a destroyed Mosque. Even if it is 900 years old.

Been watching Syria on militaryphotos.net
Total destruction and my feeling is Who the hell is going to rebuild this shit.
SAA or the FSA don't seem to give a shit about what infrastructure they blow up.
Hope we don't help rebuild for them.

Islamists tend to destroy everything until the local populace is back in the Stone Age.

And then they destroy some more. They are the single greatest threat to civilization.

That would be hilarious if it wasn't going to get its' own crazy conspiracy theory in the muslim world, and be used as a pretext for additional jihad against America. Seriously.

More than likely, they'll blame Israel.

Nah. AD 642ish was when it was finally destroyed during the muzzie conquest. They were quite proud of it, in fact.
