Assad regime has destroyed almost 800 mosques

A member of the National Council and Syrian Coalition, Ahmad Ramadan, has revealed that the regime in Damascus has destroyed 780 mosques in the country since it started its military fight back against opposition forces in the two-year conflict.


In response to a question from a German news agency on Wednesday, Ramadan said that Bashar Al-Assad's regime has destroyed mosques, religious schools, churches and synagogues. Addressing the worldwide community of 1.5 billion Muslims, the exiled Ramadan asked them to consider such destruction of places of worship. "Does this mean nothing to you?" he railed.

Ramadan, who spends most of his time in Turkey, criticised the Syrian regime's continued presence at the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation and UNESCO despite such destructive action.
