New Footage from the Tomb of Shaykh Sirajuddin

Last month, clashes broke out near the centuries old Shaabaniya complex where the Saint of Aleppo of the last century, Shaykh Abdallah Sirajuddin may God be pleased with him, is buried.


[Shaykh `Abdallah Sirajuddin al-Husayni]

This is a picture of his tomb that I took a couple of years ago:

The following new footage (from which the top picture is taken) shows the damage that has been done:

As already seemed to be the case from the earlier video, the glass around the tomb has been shattered. There is a hole in the ceiling and the chandelier has come down and has been shattered as well. There are also holes in the wall and more damage in and around the room. Judging from the holes, shelling is what caused most of the damage. How this exactly happened and who is responsible for it still isn’t clear, other than most likely being a result of the clashes.
