I was about to past the same link; until I played the video. Must be a technical glitch with CNN; as the video shows security forces controlling activity at a local hospital.

There is also a YouTube video showing Pearl (Lulu) Monument. It's a 10 second "drive by".

And a link to an Arab Language channel showing a line of dumptrucks and equipment in place before being pulled down; then a quick after shot.
