Going by different names depending on the media outlet, the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant - Daesh, IS, ISIS, or ISIL - has made sure to gain many other titles to go along with their heinous acts in the region.
Taking over Syria and Iraq in 2014, the terrorist group went after ethnic and religious minorities, as well as numerous historic sites - which by title belong to the world, as UNESCO categorizes them.
As many thousand-year-old cities and artifacts have been demolished, bulldozed, and looted by ISIS, this list remembers 10 of the oldest and most important sites that went under attack.
1. Roman Theatre in Palmyra, Syria
2. Tetrapylon in Palmyra, Syria
3. Temple of Baalshamin in Palmyra, Syria
"The southwest columns of the northern colonnaded courtyard contain a set of three standing columns and their architrave in front of the temple. Between 14 November 2013 and 08 March 2014, the right-most column was destroyed or removed. In addition, a section of the architrave between two columns of the eastern wall was destroyed or removed between 01 September2012 and 14 November 2013," according to a UNITAR report.
4. Dura Europos, Syria
The terrorist group ran illegal excavations in this 300 BC site, according to a 2016 report by ASOR CHI.
"ISIL has reportedly granted excavation licenses across the area to profit from the ongoing looting," causing great damage to the site.
5. Great Umayyad Mosque in Aleppo, Syria
This 8th century AD mosque and a Unesco World Heritage site was demolished during a fight between the Syrian Army and Free Syrian Army in April 2013.
6. Nineveh, Iraq
7. Nimrud, Iraq
The first Assyrian capital from over 3,000 years ago, not yet fully uncovered as some of it remains hidden underground, and an internationally revered site was bulldozed by ISIS.
"There are multiple reasons why ISIL militants may have destroyed the ziggurat, and the group has destroyed other monuments at the site as performative deliberate destructions, such as the reconstructed Northwest Palace and the Nabu Temple (the Ezida)," an ASOR Cultural Heritage Initiatives report said.
