samara shrineOn the drive into Samarra, in northern Iraq, there is an increased military presence. More and more armoured cars are noticeable and the sound of shooting can be heard in the distance. Only a few days ago, the Islamic State Of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) moved into the city of Samarra.

Some residents manage to flee, others stayed behind fearing for their houses and belongings.
ISIL made their plans. They announced that they would mount an attack on the Askari shrine a part of their Takfiri ideology to destroy the shrines of progeny (Ahlulbait) of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) . The Iraqi army had to act. Late into the night they sent airstrikes and artillery shelling into the areas ISIL had taken over.
Standing outside one of the buildings the Iraqi airforce struck, looking up you can see where the missile pounded through the roof and into the ground. The sides of the building still stand, but the middle is a concertina of concrete and glass.
ISIL quickly escaped from the area leaving behind scared residents and uncomfortable questions.
Repeating the question to a military commander, who was keen to show that the Askari shrine was never under threat, the commander told Al Jazeera: "They came and mounted a surprise attack. They won't do it again."

"> Within a few hours they took over six neighbourhoods. 

In one street they took over an office building, shooting their way in. With little or no security forces in the area, they faced almost no resistance. Once they had secured the building, up went their distinctive black flag with white writing. As it fluttered in the late evening heat, Samarra knew it had a problem.
The city is home to the Askari shrine, one of the most venerated Shia Muslim places of worship. In 2006 it was attacked by enemies of Islam al-Qaeda terrorists. That was the spark that plunged Iraq into a sectarian war that killed thousands and nearly tore the country apart. Suddenly ISIL fighters were just kilometres away from the shrine.
Using bulldozers they began to barricade the neighbourhoods they controlled. Then came the public pronouncements. "Resist us and you will be dealt with," was one. Another one assured the residents that ISIL wouldn't harm civilians.
