The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or IS) group captured the Temple of Bel in May, and issued a statement with images of ancient religious sites and a promise that the group “will not destroy them.” That turned out to be untrue. Widely recognized as one of the most important religious sites of the first century, the temple became the second of two in Syria that ISIL destroyed earlier this summer. In late August, the group released photos showing the destroyed temple, and the extent of the damage was later confirmed through satellite imagery . It’s understood that militants filled the temple with explosive-filled barrels, lining the interior of the ancient structure with blue sentinels of destruction.
