This is the fourth of five posts that are based on the efforts of the team for Monuments of Mosul in Danger. So far, there is no evidence that the Mosque of Sheikh al-Shatt has been destroyed.
Al Noor News reported the destruction of the Mosque of Sheykh al-Shatt in al-Maydan neighbourhood, but it presented no evidence. Searching images in media that included the words in the title of the (Arabic-language) Al Noor News report, I found the AhlulBayt News report, but that had recycled an image of the destruction of Qaddo Mosque in Tal Afar in late June (which was translated, identified and documented by Christopher Jones at the time).
Still, I share Karel Nováček’s pessimism that there probably is a new campaign of destruction.
