ALEPPO, SYRIA (4:05 P.M.) – The Free Syrian Army (FSA) and their jihadist allies continue to violate the nationwide ceasefire by targeting government-controlled neighborhoods in several provinces around the country.

On Saturday, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) filmed the material destruction of the Syriac Catholic Church in the Al-‘Aziziyah District of northern Aleppo.

The footage showed the carnage from the Free Syrian Army’s rockets and mortar shells that were fired at this historical church in Aleppo city.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) does not maintain a large presence in the Al-‘Aziziyah District of Aleppo, so the Free Syrian Army was not targeting the government forces in the area.

Several Aleppo churches and mosques have been destroyed by the rebel forces in Syria, including a number of archeological sites that date back to the Crusades.

I don’t think although, just get in touch with the Syrian govt… but SDF and YPG accept foreign fighters.

Not a good idea at all. If he asks Syrian Christians, surely they will suggest SAA front line.

Never thought it could be a US strategy to get rid of all this scum?
Help them getting into Syria, join some lunatic jihadist gang linked to Qaeda or Daesh, now you’ve got them on a free fire-zone instead of building sleeper-cells and doing their Da’wa in the US which would be much more complicated to bust and jail all this would be much more expensive than letting Assad, Putin or the kurds killing all this scum…

In other terms : correcting the totally stupid things Reagan then the Bushs’ did. Obama goals always seemed very blurred and he’s a clever guy.
I’m not saying the US are doing it but it’s the kinda measures I’d really consider if I were here and it’d be very interesting to f**k-up the neo-cons’ follies…

Since these FSA terrorists are US backed you won’t hear a word about the decimation of the Christian population.

so this are the precious freedom fighters that our beloved leaders from the west nurture, train and arm for democracy sake. This looks more like operation salvador 2.0. All this people behind all this madness… I hope they all burn in h**l for this evil they have brought to the innocent people of Syria. They have the audacity to call themselves Christians while fanning the flames of sectarism and racism over people that have done nothing to us. Go onward Syria, Russia, Iran, Iraq, Hezbolla, Al quds and the rest of the real freedom fighters… God bless y’all!!!

In this case, it’s more useless than fake : enough christians or atheists have red koran since 9/11 and they communicate a lot especially about the scandalizing Surat 9, the taqiyya concept and Haddiths clearly don’t help these groups propaganda in secular countries as there is no “Christian world” : all these countries are secular and at the level of public opinion, where do you think sympathies go? So the secular Assad or to jihadists with an ideology saying to kill all “kuffars” we are? BTW, if you think that the christians don’t know that 80% of world’s religious persecutions… Read more »
