Terrorists of the IS takfiri group are selling stolen artifacts from a museum in Iraq’s Mosul city to buyers in Europe.

Qais Hussein Rashid, deputy minister of culture, said that his ministry had information that the valuable artifacts were now being sold in Europe.

According to Rashid, IS was allegedly using such sales to generate money for the armed group. He added that Iraqi authorities were taking measures to retrieve the stolen art treasures.

Also, the Mosul library, home to some 8,000 historical texts, has also been burnt down by IS takfiri terrorists.
