Jihadi ethnic cleansing
against Christians underway in central Syria?
several security and NGOs reports, an ISIS Jihad blitz
has taken the town of "al Qaryatein" south East of Homs
(see map), and seized hundreds of its inhabitants,
mostly women and children from the Christian Syriac
community. The reports fear another blitz offensive
launched from al Qaryatein in the direction of Sadad
another Christian Syriac town east of interstate M 5
linking Damascus to Homs. These two Christian towns are
inhabited by an Aramaic speaking population part of
Syria's Christian population of close to two million.
Ethnic cleansing at the hands of the ISIS Caliphate is
feared by NGOs who are calling on the EU and the US to
take immediate actions to stop ISIS and free the
hundreds of Syriac civilians now in the hands of the
Jihadists. In Brussels, the representatives of the
Syriac Military Council have urged the West to supply
them with weapons and trainers to resist the advances of
ISIS into their villages in north and central Syria.
