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.
