Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant(ISIL) released a video that showed the devestation of artifacts of Musul and generated condemnation and fear that other archaological sites would meet the same fate in North of Iraq. Irina Bokovo, the Director-General of U.N Culture agency,UNESCO askd for an emergency session of the U.N Scurity Council to be convened for the protection of Musul heritage. Irina Bokovo,chief of UNESCO in a statement said”…This attack is far more than a cultural tragedy. This is a security issue as it fuels sectarianism and ,violent exremisn and conflict in Iraq” She called on the on the ICC to look into the destruction of Musul heritage. She said she had sent a letter to the ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda. She described the destruction of Iraqi antiquities as “Cultural cleansing”. The French president Fracois Holland condnmed the “barbity” of relics destruction .”The barbity affect people, history, memories and culture” he told reporters during a visit to Philipine. Emanuel valss , the prime minister of France looked to the process of distruction as the disappearance of a part from the world human thought. Jack Lang, the former minister of culture and currently the president of the Arab world Institute described destroying the archaological pieces as Hilter’s facism. Nabeel Alraby, the Secretery-General of the Arab League stated that the devestaion of Musul relics was “barbaric crime” He added that “…This brutal aggression on the cultural heritage of the Iraq people is the most horrible crime committed in this era against human heritage as a whole”.
