#TheHistoryHeretic Reports: Ancient 2,600-Year-Old Mosul Palace Could Collapse #JovanHuttonPulitzer 

Archaeologists claim they have unearthed a 600BC palace underneath a holy shrine in Iraq destroyed by Isis.The local researchers say there is an extra network of chambers beneath the Nebi Yunus shrine – containing what Muslims and Christians believe is the tomb of the Prophet Jonah – in eastern Mosul.

But it was the Islamic extremists who first started digging tunnels down to the palace after blowing up the shrine in 2014.It is reportedly the first evidence of Isis tunnelling during their searches for ancient artefacts to plunder.The tunnels are apparently home to a marble cuneiform inscription of King Esarhaddon thought to date back to the Assyrian empire in 627BC.  More at link below
