The ISIL (Daesh) Takfiri group has threatened to destroy the holy Ka’aba in Makkah, Saudi Arabia.
A member of the terrorist group posted a message on Twitter, saying that people worship a stone building instead of God and so it should be demolished.
The message said if Daesh manages to conquer Makkah, it would raze the Ka’aba to the ground on the order of the group’s leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, al-Bawaba news reported.
This is not the first time the Takfiri group talks of demolishing the holy place in Makkah.
Last year, Torab al Moqaddasi, a senior member of ISIL, wrote on his twitter account that, “With the help of Allah and the Leadership of our sheikh(!) al-Baghdadi We will attack Makkah and kill those pilgrims who worship a stone and we will demolish Ka’aba.”
He added that “People go to Ka’aba for touching a stone not for Allah. We will attack Ka’aba and demolish it because people are worshiping a stone.”
The ISIL Takfiri group made swift advances in much of northern and western Iraq last summer, after capturing large swaths of northern Syria.
The group has been committing heinous crimes in the regions it has occupied.
