Terrorists from DAESH, the so called “Islamic State” (IS, ISIL, ISIS) have bulldozed Mar Elian Monastery (a 1,500-year-old Christian Monastery, archaeological-artistic-spiritual World Heritage Site) on the western outskirts of al-Qaryatein city, 85 km from the central city of Homs.
The barbaric terror group used the heavy building machinery to take down the Mar Elian Monastery, a national Syrian treasure, which has stood in Al-Qaryatayn since 432 AD.
The monastery, which dates back to the 4th century AD, is deemed a center for interfaith dialogue in the heart of al-Qaryrtein city. It is also a key refuge for displaced people who fled terrorist organizations.
