WARNING: GRAPHIC PICTURES:
My Comments. This is just one of many instances of Christians being killed by the so-called “rebels” in Syria. I’ve read many accounts and have seen videos of whole villages of Christians being slaughtered. Isn’t it amazing that Pres. Obama is arming these Muslim rebels who end up killing the Christians. The ripe fruit of Islam when they are allowed to have their way with “infidel” Christians. Wake up America!
Atrocity Follows Wave of Mortar Attacks on Christian Targets by Rebels
DAMASCUS, November 13, 2013 (Zenit.org) – Five children were killed Monday in a mortar attack on a Christian primary school in Damascus.
The attack, which also wounded 27 others, was on the St. John Damascene primary school in the district of Al-Qassaa in Damascus, Fides reports.
Another rocket hit a school bus in Bab Touma, a predominantly Christian suburb, injuring 5 students. In the same area, a mortar shell hit St. Cross Church, already targeted in recent days, and another damaged St. Cyril Church. Three other people were killed by a rocket, also in the center of the capital….
The attacks follow a mortar strike on the Apostolic Nunciature Nov. 5, and a further rocket attack on Sunday that killed a Christian man with his four children.
These neighborhoods are “affected indiscriminately, just because they are the areas under the regular army control and the civilian population pay the price,” a Damascus priest told Fides.
He said the suburbs, such as Jaramana, Kassaa, Malki of Damascus are being targeted “that are the most pluralistic, inhabited by people of different ethnicity and religion”.
Fr. Gabriel Dawood, a Syriac Orthodox priest of the Cathedral of St. George in Damascus, told Fides that “in our churches we continue to hope and to light candles, praying for all the faithful killed, and for those at risk, especially for the Christian villages threatened by armed gangs”.
