The Shrine of Mashhad al-Imam ‘Awn al-Din has been destroyed (Mosul, Iraq, 25th July 2014)

I’m beginning to catch up with the bad news that’s arrived while I’ve been offline. First of all, various cuts of a video via Gilgamesh Nabeel, Christopher Jones @cwjones89 and Simone Muehl), including a quick blast-only clip that I found, correspond to photographs and descriptions of a site on Archnet, the Shrine of Mashhad al-Imam ‘Awn al-Din.

Its name is also recorded/transliterated as the Shrine of Imam Awn al-Din ibn al-Hasan ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib or Imam Aldoaash Awn al-Din ibn al-Hasan ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib). It was destroyed in Mosul, Iraq, on the 25th of July.
