Accuracy in Media

As Fox News reported:

Islamic State (ISIS) militants severely damaged a 2,000-year-old temple in the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra Sunday, activists said.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which relies on a network of informants inside the war-torn country, said the Bel Temple had been damaged, but did not provide further details. A Palmyra resident, who goes by the name of Nasser al-Thaer, told the Associated Press that ISIS militants set off a huge blast at 1:45 p.m. local time Sunday.

“It is total destruction,” he said of the scene of the explosion. “The bricks and columns are on the ground.”
