During a press conference held inside the shrine, Kambash stressed that there is an integrated program for the reconstruction of shrines, mosques and historical monuments, as a committee of the Endowment was formed to reconstruct the edifice and restore it, because of the great place it holds in the souls of the residents of Mosul and the Islamic world.

The shrine of Prophet Yunus was destroyed by ISIS terrorists on July 24, 2014.
