Iraqi Sunni Waqaf (religious endowments) official Abu Bakr Kanaan announced the start of the reconstruction of the Mosque of Prophet Daniel, which was reportedly bombed by ISIS terrorists before the liberation of Mosul.

The rubble of the mosque was removed and returned to its original place, Kanaan said, noting that the Mosque of Prophet Daniel is one of the most prominent landmarks in the old city of Mosul.

ISIS reportedly bombed the Mosque of Prophet Daniel in late 2014, while taking over the old city.
