IS Militants Destroy Ancient Statue of Lion of Al-Lat Outside Syrian City of Palmyra

Wildly notorious militant organization Islamic State (IS), which is also called ISIS and ISIL, has been busy for quite a long time in killing innocent people and causing devastations. Islamic State militants have already turned cities and villages into ruins, and its obsession to hurt humanity is apparently still on the rise.  
Most recently, IS militants destroyed a classic statue of a lion outside the main museum in the famous ancient city of Palmyra in Syria.

The famous lion statue, which was called the Lion of Al-Lat, was an irreplaceable piece of ancient art. The limestone statue was three 10 feet in height and 15 tones in weight. Emerging reports suggest that it was discovered in 1977 by Polish archeologists at the temple of Al-Lat, a pre-Islamic Arabian goddess. 
While it hurts that Islamic State militants destroyed the Lion of Al-Lat, a historic piece of art created in the 1st century BC; it is definitely not surprising at all. The whole world knows the cruel and destructive nature of the Islamic State.

Another militant group called Al Qaeda had also destroyed a number of ancient pieces of art in Afghanistan, with a claim that such art is against the principles of Islam.

But, Islamic State must keep it in mind that nothing is permanent in the world, including pieces of art like the Lion of Al-Lat as well as Islamic State itself.  Let me say its destructive nature will eventually bring it to an end.
