Is­lamic State mil­i­tants de­stroyed parts of Dur-Shar­rukin, a 2 800-year-old Assyr­ian site near Khorsabad in north­ern Iraq on 8 March, prompt­ing the Iraqi gov­ern­ment to ask the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity to ac­ti­vate its air strikes and fight ter­ror­ism. The mil­i­tants also de­stroyed parts of Nim­rud and Ha­tra, two of north­ern Iraq’s most prized an­cient cities.
