SYRIA — Al Qaeda-linked terrorists reportedly demolished several ancient Jewish mausoleums in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo.
 
The graves were located in the historical town of Tadif, according to the semi-official Iranian FARS news agency and other Iranian news outlets. The terrorists reportedly belong to the al Qaeda-backed al Nusra Front.
 
A tomb said to be that of Ezra the Scribe is located in the town. It is unclear if it was one of the damaged grave sites
