CRAP !!
Reference books agree that the damage was done long before napoleon came to Egypt. In addition to centuries of weather damage, the head of the Sphinx suffered at the hands of the Turks in the 14th century.
Those who shot at the monument with guns are identified as the Mamelukes, who ruled Egypt in the 18th century.
The charge against napoleon is particularly ridiculous because, along with
his troops, he brought a group of scholars to begin the first scientific
study of the ancient artifacts of the region.
