What happens to our Christian Brothers and Sisters in Syria-Irak?
February 26, 2015
Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists have kidnapped dozens of Christians in northern Syria. According to reports, some sources state that as many as 90 were abducted from their homes near Tal Tamr.
The Assyrian International News Agency (AINA) reports that four Assyrian fighters were killed as a result of the battles, along with tens of ISIS jihadists. AINA also reported that while dozens have been abducted, other Christian communities are now completely surrounded by the Islamic terrorists.
The Islamic State also destroyed a “number of churches” in the area, which include the churches in Tel Hurmiz, Tel Shamiran, and Tel Baloua, AINA reports.
Approximately 3,000 residents have been forced to flee their Assyrian communities in Syria. A source on the ground told AINA that people who live in the villages have not been answering their phones, and that some of the calls have been answered by ISIS jihadists.
