Reconstruction is part of the United Nations project to “revive the spirit of Mosul”

A group of Egyptian architects won a competition to rebuild the Great Al-Nuri Mosque in Mosul, four years after it was destroyed by ISIS militants.

ISIS members blew up the 12th-century mosque in June 2017, as government forces moved to retake the city.

Three years before that, the leader of the organization, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, declared a “caliphate” from the famous mosque.

The reconstruction is part of the United Nations project to “revive the spirit of Mosul”.
