Attacks in Syria

About 35 predominantly Christians villages cluster along the banks of the Khabur river in northern Syria. On 23 February they were attacked  by Islamic State (IS) militants, who captured almost 300 Christians. Some 1,200 families fled and Barnabas has sent aid to assist them. Church buildings were destroyed  in the attach including one at Tel Hurmoz, believed to be one of the oldest in the country. Another attack occurred on 7 March. Pray for all the Christians, captured is displaced, and that God will intervene to stop the advance of IS in Syria.
