Syria: Muslims of ISIS killed 21 Christians in al-Qaryatain, says patriarch

Reports are emerging of the killing of Syrian Christians by Islamic State militants in the town of al-Qaryatain.

The town was retaken by Russian-backed Syrian forces and their allies earlier in the week.

Some 21 Christians were murdered when almost 300 Christians remained in the city after IS captured it last August, said the head of the Syrian Orthodox Church.

They included three women, Patriarch Ignatius Aphrem II told the BBC.

    And the near 50,000 Syrian Migrants that Justin is bringing in use the same quran as ISIS and worship the same muhammad ISIS is emulating as they slaughter infidels as a favour to allah.

    that’s why they call it the religion of peace… everyone who is invaded by muslims gets to rest in peace.

  • Again – why was it the right decision to withdraw from the fight against ISIS?
