A teenage boy has found the best weapon to combat ISIS and that is to make art replicating original pieces that were destroyed by the terrorists in Iraq.
The 51 second video visually demonstrates 17-year-old boy, Nenous Thabit, molding and forming clay pieces together to mimic original historical relics.

According to CNN’s video “This teen uses clay to fight ISIS,” Thabit has sculpted 18 Assyrian statues and one mural.
The Best part is, the young boy is trying to inspire others by holding kid friendly workshops on sculpture making.
Earlier this week, Nimrud, the village where the boy lives, was taken back from ISIS by the Iraqi army, according to http://www.cnn.com/2016/11/17/middleeast/nimrud-iraq-mosul-artifacts/index.html.
The young boy told CNN, “My dream is to become a prominent artist in Iraq to make my country proud and show the world that we in Iraq love life and cherish our heritage.”
“So continuing to sculpt is a message that we will not be intimidated by those devils.”
