BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:10 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) launched several artillery shells towards the predominately Christian city of Mhardeh in northern Hama today.
As a result of today’s attack by the jihadist rebels, the St. George Roman Orthodox Church inside of Mhardeh was damaged, along with several buildings nearby.
According to local activists in northern Hama, the jihadist attack on Mhardeh wounded at least a dozen civilians that were in the vicinity of the St. George Church.
Previously, the jihadist rebels issued a statement telling the civilians of Mhardeh to not fear them because they only intend to fight the government; however, the Free Syrian Army has continued to attack this Christian city with a barrage of artillery shells and missiles everyday.
