How would you explain “fool the eyes” in the sentence? We followed one soldier as he walked west toward the sloping banks of the river. It was as good a guess as any other. A mosque’s towering minarets fooled the eyes and appeared to curve and hover over everything. How would you explain “fool the eyes” in the second sentence? Thanks!

This means that the minarets did not actually curve over everything, but simply that they appeared to do so.
