Chalabi said in an interview with “Alsumaria News“, that “members of the terrorist organization ISIS expelled the imam of the Prophet Yunus mosque, east of the city of Mosul, after they took the keys to the mosque from it,” indicating that “the terrorist organization members imposed their control over the mosque and closed it and prevented prayers in it.” “.

Chalabi warned against “the terrorist organization ISIS’s offense to the mosque and the grave of Prophet Yunus,” calling for “the need to move and demand the restoration of the mosque.”

Iraq has witnessed an exceptional security situation since the declaration of the state of emergency on (10 June 2014), as military security operations continue to expel ISIS from the areas in which it is spread in Nineveh and Salah al-Din governorates, while military operations continue in Anbar to confront the organization.
