Last quote by Axel Plathe

The sites that are in these areas are counted by thousands. We of course are mostly concerned by the most emblematic sites: we have been shocked by the aggression against Hatra, which is a World Heritage Site – it's tantamount to aggressing the Pyramids in Egypt or the Birthplace of Buddha in Lumbini in Nepal. So this is really a significant acceleration of destruction. Ashur is on the World Heritage list, the archeological city in Samarra is on the World Heritage list. These are very important sites in Iraq.feedback

Most recently, Axel Plathe was quoted in the article More Iraq sites at risk from ISIL 'cultural cleansing' - UNESCO saying, “We can't send armies to the sites and to protect them there, UNESCO has not the mandate to send armies. We can however work with our partners, particularly the government of Iraq, in order to see whether we can limit the damages and also prevent hopefully other aggressions against the culture heritage sites. But at the present time it's very difficult for us to intervene on the ground, the UN has no staff that is presently in the area that is controlled by the terrorist groups.”.
