Israeli engineers Jacob Schaefer and Meir Ronen went to Iraq as part of the mission of the organization «Engineers without borders» to rescue the tomb of the biblical prophet Nahum, according to the Tenth channel ITV.
According to the Israeli experts work to prevent the final destruction of the tomb will cost 200-300 thousand dollars, and the complete renovation will take another 2 or 3 million dollars.
The tomb of the prophet Nahum located in the Kurdistan region of Iraq, just 50 kilometres from recently liberated from the militants of Mosul.
The building of the tomb, built about 1500 years ago, was a place of Jewish pilgrimage, especially during the holiday of Shavuot. After the mass Exodus of Kurdish Jews in Israel is the tomb gradually fell into disrepair and began to crumble.
