Iraqi Federal police on Saturday revealed that ISIS terrorist group had used a church in the Old City of Mosul as a training camp.

Commander of the Federal Police, LT. Gen. Raed Shaker Jawdat said that police forces disvovered an ISIS training camp inside the Latin Church (clock church) in Mosul.

Built in the 1870s by the Dominican Fathers, it was especially famous for its bell donated by Empress Eugenia de Montijo, for which it was sometimes called the Clock Church.

In the summer of 2014 Mosul fell into the hands of ISIS terrorists including the church. However, in July, US-backed Iraqi army ousted ISIS from Mosul, its last major stronghold in Iraq.
