Arab Gunmen Accompanied by Islamic Regime' Revolutionary Guards wreck “Palace of Khosrow” ruins (Ctesiphon)

 

01 January 2006

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- In a dispatch posted al-Mada’in correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported on 30th December 2005, that members of the Badr Brigades and more than 11 Islamic Regime' Revolutionary Guards (Sepâh-e Pâsdârân) from Iran together with a large armed force with a number of vehicles caused serious damages what had remained of the ancient Iranian “Palace of Khosrow” (Ctesiphon) and the buildings near by.

 

The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported a source in the Antiquities Department in al-Mada’in, Khalid ‘Abd ‘Ayyash who went to the scene as saying that the Badr gunmen accompanied by the revolutionary guards went into the great monument and stayed there for more than three hours, wrecking and damaging what had remained standing of the ancient ruins.

 

‘Ayyash said that after the Badr Brigade and revolutionary guards left, he found that they had torn up the palace of Khosrow by the foundation. Four columns had also been wrecked as was a small arch that encircled the outer gates of the palace.  They gave no reason for their act of wanton destruction.

 

The correspondent reported that the same site had also been attacked when the US forces stormed into the city earlier this year.  At that time more than 50 percent of the ruins were razed.
